Event description

Description

Intergenerational trauma as a result of historical looting and systemic inequity have heavily influenced our present day, from health disparities to inhospitable housing, poisoned natural resources, and lack of access to adequate foods, to name a few.

Capitalism continues like a plague in its consistent attempts to leave our communities barren. How do centuries of oppression translate to contemporary structural issues that continue to affect marginalized peoples? As people of the African diaspora, as First Nations people, as working class people, as people living on the margins, how will we engage?

This conference, the first of its kind, will focus on the following areas: environmental justice, rethinking historical trauma through epigenetics and public health, black masculinity, healing in the African diaspora, decolonizing spirituality, gentrification as neocolonialism, afrofuturism, indigenous creativity, and alchemy. Guests will be able to engage in workshops, panel discussions, and networking with creatives, healers and organizers.

Diaspora Radicalx's first conference was made possible by Shaira Chaer, Veronica Agard, Malanya Graham, Chef Diamond Wynn, Terron Davis, Antonia Perez, and Oscar Lopez.
