Join us for a conversation exploring the ways that narrative, art, and activism have historically been used in the fight against HIV/AIDS and the importance of documenting these stories through personal archives. Prepare to be challenged to tell and document your own story and start your own archive. Participants include Emil Wilbekin, journalist, digital media strategist and founder of NATIVE SON; Bridgett Pride, Reference Librarian in Manuscripts, Archives and Rare Books Art and Artifacts Division of the Schomburg Center; and other invited guests.

Presented in partnership with NATIVE SON and Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. NATIVE SON harnesses the collective power of Black gay/queer men with the goal of ensuring that our voices, visibility, and lived experiences are elevated in all of the communities in which we exist and never again disregarded.
