Transgender Day of Remembrance Pre-Event with Kavi Adé
November 19, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
In honor of Transgender Day of Remembrance, CUAB, UNC SAGA and the LGBTQ Center are excited to welcome Trans spoken word artist, Kavi Adé, for a performance.
Kavi Adé is a Black Trans Queer speaker, arts educator and nationally recognized poet of Afro and Indigenous Caribbean descent. Kavi received a BA in Social Justice with a concentration in Art for Social Change and Gender Justice from Hamline University in St. Paul, MN. Adé’s work meets at the intersection of personal and political – navigating what it means to be a survivor of innumerable violences. Kavi speaks on race, class, gender, sexuality, mental health, domestic violence, sexual assault and social justice – chronicling despair, grasping at hope and exploring the ways a body can learn to survive.
Light refreshments will be served.
