Join black queer writers in a lively discussion about writing and publishing in the Digital Age. Learn about their successes and struggles and share your stories.

Panelists include Terrance Dean, Stanley Bennett Clay, James Earl Hardy, G. Winston James, Cheryl Boyce-Taylor, and Imani Henry. The discussion will be moderated by Steven G. Fullwood, project director of the Black Gay & Lesbian Archive.

The panel will also explore the literary impact of filmmaker/activist Marlon Riggs and writer E. Lynn Harris, and the enormous influence they had on a generation of writers and activists. Other topics include considering the roles and responsibilities of black queer independent publishers and self-published writers in documenting and preserving black queer culture and history.
