Event description
ABSC International Lecture Series IV (San Pedro/Virtual) celebrates the continuum of sexual expression of persons of African descent!

About this event

The 2021 ABSC International Lecture Series theme is "The Convergence of Courage and Emancipatory Discourse." The Convergence of Courage and Emancipatory Discourse exists within Black literature devoted to the sexual expression of persons of African descent. Courage is a product of the relativistic need and desire to research, create space, and tell our authentic stories. Emancipatory discourse is an outcome of authenticity and actualization. When we met two years ago in Havana, Cuba, we held discussions about the continuum and fluidity of Black sexuality that allowed participants to feel heard, be affirmed, and experience healing and renewal. This year, we meet virtually (and/or in San Pedro) to continue conversations about sexual health and wellness for persons of African descent.
