A Eugenics (Un)Haunting: Collaboration w/ Sxip Shirey
Thursday, November 20, 2014
8 Washington Mews
New York, NY, USA
I will be teaming up with songwriter and musical magician Sxip Shirey to perform an original work as a part of the below event. It's free and open to all.
From mass sterilization to mass incarceration; quota-based immigration restrictions to a regime of border militarization—how do the dubious hierarchies of ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, and ability, greatly shaped by early 20th century eugenics research, continue to be re-crafted and re-deployed?
Artists, activists, and academics join forces to trace the lineages of American nativism, racism, and ableism through readings, performance, music, and analysis. Featuring poet and activist Sonia Guinansaca (New York State Youth Leadership Council and CultureStrike), historian and lawyer Paul A. Lombardo (Georgia State University), author and activist Dr. N. Ordover (American Eugenics: Race, Queer Anatomy, and the Science of Nationalism), writer Tommy “Teebs” Pico (absentMINDR), social justice activist and expert Loretta J. Ross (co-founder, SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective), musician, writer, and educator/activist Sonny Singh (Red Baraat), composer and producer Sxip Shirey, and more TBA.
