This event is free and open to the public. RSVP's are required. Register here. This event will begin at 6:00 PM CST. 

Erin Sharkey, Naima Penniman, J. Wortham and Alexis Pauline Gumbs will discuss their relationships to ancestry, the archive and to healing with and through their relationships to land and the natural world.

The anthology where their work appears, A Darker Wilderness, is a constellation of luminary writers reflecting on the significance of nature in their lived experience and on the role of nature in the lives of Black folks in the United States. Each of the essays included engages with a single archival object, whether directly or obliquely, exploring stories spanning hundreds of years and thousands of miles, traveling from roots to space and finding rich Blackness everywhere.

This event will take place via Zoom Webinar. RSVP to reserve your place.
