Department ofAfrican American Studies

On November 5th in Foster Auditorium, Mia McKenzie had a conversation about the intersections of race, queerness, gender, class, and social justice.

Mia McKenzie is an award-winning author and a smart, scrappy Philadelphian (now living in the bay area) who studied writing at the University of Pittsburgh. She is a black feminist and a freaking queer, facts that are often reflected in her stories. She also created Black Girl Dangerous, an online blog and multi-faceted forum for creative and political expression.
