Community of Change: the Intersection & Impact of Black LGBTQ+ Men

November 30, 2022 @ 6:30 pm
Harvey B. Gantt Center
551 S. Tryon Street
NC 28202

Join us for a community dialogue about the experiences of Black LGBTQ+ men facilitated by multi-disciplinary artist and community leader Jermaine Nakia Lee!

Along with Lee, co-facilitators will be Nate Turner, owner of Your Custom Catering & Events and vocational school educator and Chandler “Chan” Robinson (Chan the Musical Mystic), CMS educator, martial artist and mystic artist.

This is the Gantt Center and the Levine Museum’s first Community of Change conversation in honor of the Men of Change exhibition. Community of Change conversations place participants at the forefront. The series will explore themes presented in Men of Change to create space for difficult conversations that both enlighten and motivate.

Inspired by Men of Change Bayard Rustin, Alvin Ailey, Kehinde Wiley, James Baldwin, and others, this conversation will explore the following questions:

  • How does this intersection of LGBTQ+ and Black identities influence who these men were, how they presented themselves, and their impact?
  • How did these Men of Change inspire their generations as well as those after them?

The conversation will move beyond the men presented in the exhibition into a wider discussion of the experiences of Black LGBTQ+ men, and how this contributes to the multi-layered Black experience.

This event is free but registration is requested.
