Discussion | Walking While Trans: The End of New York’s Anti-Loitering Law (in-person and online)


A panel discussion on the successful effort to repeal New York State’s “Walking While Trans” law. Through a conversation with leading policymakers, attorneys, and activists, this event will examine how a powerful policy coalition came together to advance the law’s repeal and look ahead to future LGBTQ+ policy campaigns aimed at reducing mass incarceration in New York. In February of 2021, New York repealed the anti-loitering law commonly known as “Walking While Trans,” which, according to its critics, was used by law enforcement to harass and arrest trans people. Culminating years of grassroots activism led by trans people of color, the repeal is part of an ongoing fight to reform the police system and reduce the criminalization of New York’s queer and trans communities.

Discussion | Bridge: Protocols of Jazz and Modernism (online)


A bridge that serves as structure for music, that functions as both practice and protocol, lends this program its title. Bridge: Protocols of Jazz and Modernism draws on such musical structures as the bridge as well as its classical precedent, the call and response, to articulate various protocols of jazz and modern music. The discussion centers on the contributions of major thinkers and artists in the field of jazz and critical theory. It spans the deterritorialization of modernism, the ownership of jazz, and the protocols of bridge(ing). Drawing on art historian Huey Copeland’s concept of feasting on scraps as well as former VLC Fellow and art historian Kobena Mercer’s concept of dialogics of diaspora, this exchange cuts across multiple geographies through various entanglements of thought and practice. It aims at fulfilling the structure of jazz described as call and response by critic Amiri Baraka. Participants: Those registered and Raymond Pinto, performance artist Tendayi Sithole, Associate Professor, Department of Political Sciences, University of South Africa Serubiri Moses, independent curator

Author Reading | The Case for Rage: Why Anger Is Essential to Anti-Racist Struggle (online)


In her new book, philosopher Myisha Cherry turns popular prejudices about anger on their head and argues for anger’s utility—and importance—in the fight against injustice. Anger has a bad reputation. As a “negative emotion”, it’s seen by many as counterproductive, distracting, and destructive, and coming from people of color, the signs of anger can take on even more sinister connotations, stirring up stereotypes, hatred, or violence in turn. But Cherry argues that in fact the transformative and liberatory power of anger—what she terms “Lordean rage”—is crucial to the anti-racist struggle and challenging the status quo.
