“We are the ancestors of the future and what we do now will have an impact.” - Yeye Luisah Teish
Our traditions and religions can open a road of healing for everyone and anyone. Often serving as mirrors and resources during troubling times, there is a solace in finding a way to honor the divine within all forces of nature. However, as the ways in which people are expressing their gender, sexualities, and fluidity are shifting – have the practices expanded, or were they always in a certain alignment? For this session, we will explore examples of inclusive cosmologies of the past alongside contemporary instances of queering divinity. This closing of the Ancestors in Training series is explicitly being held as a community conversation among emerging thought leaders of the Black Diaspora.
