New Wave has been invited to participate in a real talk session hosted by Boston's Anti-Racist's My Knapsack Is Not Invisible Group:
We're going to try something a little risky...let's dive into race and dating. This is going to be a 100% real semi-free-for-all that attempts to address some of the following questions:
What experiences have we as a community had with inter-racial dating?
What role has race played in informing our decisions of who to date? Not to date?
What effect, if any, does location have on who we date or not?
Are racial dating preferences just that or is something else going on? Is it both/and?
What happens at the confluence of race/sexuality/gender identity?
Come with an open mind, open ears and a story or two if you can spare it. This will be a community building event. This WILL be messy! That being said...
This will be a safe space for agreement and dissent. This will attempt to not be a hetero-normative conversation. It will be as inclusive as possible. That being said, we cannot include perspectives that do not represent themselves.
