A series of dialogues among Black women scholars whose public intellectual work tells the long history of global anti-racist struggle.
Our creative editor for sx salon, Rosamond S. King, was searching for an essay about the subtle racism in the language surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and couldn't find one, so she wrote it herself.
Read her essay "Words, Race, and the Pandemic," published by The Progressive, here.

Time: 10:00 am PDT / 7:00 pm CET
Resolutely Black, a conversation with Françoise Vergès (Independent Scholar, Paris), Matthew Smith (Northern Illinois University), and Donna Jones (UC Berkeley), moderated by Karl Britto (UC Berkeley).
