Juneteenth and Black Queer & Trans Futures: A Reflection

Join Black queer and trans activists as they share reflections on Juneteenth and its relevance to Black Queer liberation on college campuses and beyond.

Hailing from the southside of Chicago and the grandchild of Gracie Lee Fowler, Romeo Jackson (They/Them) is a , Queer, Non-Binary Femme, and a Black descended of the estimated 11 million Africans who were kidnapped and sold into enslavement. They are a feminist dedicated to intersectional justice and cross movement building. Currently, Romeo is the Assistant Director of Social Justice at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas overseeing education, outreach, and mentorship efforts. Their research, writing, and practice explores Race/ism, anti-Blackness, and Settler Colonialism within a Higher Education Context with an emphasis on the experiences of Queer and Trans Students of Color. Romeo is committed to uplifting and empowering queer and trans people of color through a black queer feminist lens. They thank Audre Lorde for keeping them grounded as a whole person in a world committed to tokenizing their identities for agendas not aligned with their politics.
