Allied Media Conference. June 20-23, 2013. Detroit, MI


Are you going to Detroit for the Allied Media Conference? Look for Black/Land as a participant in the Research Justice track!

Black/Land team members Allison Guess and Tavia Benjamin will be discussants on the panel Tierra Y Libertad, presentingBlack/Land’s work on how black people understand and transcend the effects of historical trauma as part of organizing. Set in the context of contested public land in Detroit, Black/Land will offer a critical perspective on an aspect of organizing that is often overlooked – responding to transhistorical trauma in ways that help black people to become more self determining in the present.

We will also be at the Research Justice Network Gathering, sharing and learning with others engaged in the work oftactical, grassroots research in pursuit of social justice, and social justice movement building.
