The Sociology Department is pleased to announce a Colloquium by Professor Andreana Clay, Department of Sociology & Center for Research and Education on Gender and Sexuality, San Francisco State University.

When: 2:00-3:30 p.m., Wednesday, October 28, 2015

Where: Andrews Conference Room, SSH (located in the History Department)

Title: "Queering the Narrative of Black Social Movements: Living/Lives Matter"

Professor Clay will present her research on the current visibility of LGBTQ (and feminist) leadership in Black Lives Matter, in which she connects contemporary movement activism to the legacy and literacy of male (charismatic) leadership in Black social movements.

Professor Clay is a scholar of youth culture and identity, queer of color theory and critique, race/class/gender/sexuality, and social movements and activism. Her book, The Hip-Hop Generation Fights Back: Youth Activism and Post-Civil Rights Politics (NYU Press, 2012) explores how youth of color organize and identify as activists in the post civil rights era. Her articles on hip-hop culture, queer sexuality, youth activism, and hip-hop feminism have appeared in several anthologies and academic journals, including Home Girls Make Some Noise!: A Hip-Hop Feminist Anthology, the American Behavioral Scientist, and Meridians: A Journal of Race, Feminism, and Transnationalism.

Please join us for this exciting event!
