Working at the intersections of HIV/AIDS activism and the movement for Black Lives, the scholar, writer and activist Kenyon Farrow will offer a presentation on the correlation between AIDS activism and prison activism – highlighting the many ways in which HIV+ individuals, particularly low-income and black or brown individuals, are criminalized and incarcerated for their health status. Q&A with Farrow will be moderated by historian Jennifer Brier (Author of Infectious Ideas: U.S. Political Response to the AIDS Crisis, Director of Gender and Women’s Studies, University of Illinois at Chicago).
This event is organized to mark the final weekend of the exhibition One day this kid will get larger at DePaul Art Museum, which closes Sunday, April 2.
Free and open to everyone, but space is limited. Please register in advance.
