Event Details

Join us for a presentation by trans historian and filmmaker Susan Stryker as she discusses her recent efforts to link histories of trans resistance to structural police violence, the criminalization of trans lives, and incarceration to contemporary abolitionist movements. She will discuss the memorialization of the 1966 Compton’s Cafeteria Riot, the call to displace the private for-profit incarceration facility that now occupies the historic site of the riot, and efforts to link this local struggle to broader social justice movements through participation in the In Plain Sight art action. In doing so, she hopes to show how radical story-telling can be a tool for social transformation, and how history is a practice of creative truth-telling that has the power to confer realness upon unrecognized capacities for change.
