H-town State Of Black Lives Convening Tomorrow

On tomorrow and February 13 here in Houston there will be a State of Black Lives Convening in which I will be part of a 10:45 AM panel moderated by Dee Dee Watters in which we discuss Black trans lives.

This two day event is sponsored by Freedom Bound Texas and #BlackLivesMatter, and will be hosted by the Emerson Unitarian Universalist Church, 1900 Bering Dr.

It starts at 8 AM on Friday and will run through Saturday, and the keynote speaker is Elaine Brown, the former head of the Black Panther Party on an intergenerational panel entitled The Movement: Then &Now with Deloyd Parker, Kaleb Harris,  Roz Pelles and Aurora Harris  

There will also be a panel moderated by Fran Watson discussing LGBTQ people in the movement, and another by Eesha Pandit and Rachel Afi Quinn on gender and violence at 3 PM
