This event is organized by the LGBTQ Community for Racial Justice.
THE REVIVAL: WOMEN AND THE WORD chronicles the US tour of a group of Black lesbian poets and musicians, who become present-day stewards of a historical movement to build community among queer women of color. Their journey to strengthen their community is enriched by insightful interviews with leading Black feminist thinkers and historians, including Dr. Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Nikki Finney, and Alexis Deveaux. As the group tours the country, the film reveals their aspirations and triumphs, as well as the unique identity challenges they face encompassing gender, race, and sexuality. This is a rarely seen look into a special #sisterhood – one where marginalized voices are both heard and respected.
“The Revival movie featuring LGBT female artists of color is unlike anything you’ve seen before.”
GLAAD, Senior Strategist, US and Global South
“Through interviews with pioneering Black poets and artists like Alexis De Veaux and Harriet Alston, Dorsett connects contemporary Black queerness and poetry to its history.”
