Ashley Coleman Taylor’s JWJI Colloquium – Whose Atlanta Studies? A Black Queer Feminist Intervention

Ashley Coleman Taylor’s JWJI Colloquium Presentation:

“Whose Atlanta Studies?: A Black Queer Feminist Intervention”

Ashley Coleman Taylor, James Weldon Johnson Institute visiting scholar, gave a presentation on April 10, 2017, titled “Whose Atlanta Studies?: A Black Queer Feminist Intervention?” In this talk, which was part of the James Weldon Johnson Institute’s Race and Difference Colloquium Series, Coleman uses oral history interviews and archival data to argue for a ‘queering’ of Atlanta studies by mining the reasons for black queer and trans migration to Atlanta and community members’ choice to remain, invest in coalition building, and advocate for radical social change.
