Black and Biracial? Coming to Terms with Terms

6:30 PM – 8:00 PM
Central Library


A diverse collection of panelists will debate the terms they use for themselves, and the value and function of newer terminology from BIPOC to Latinx. Writer in Residence Harrison Mooney will lead a fascinating discussion of how we talk about ourselves, and how we ask others to talk about us.

Chelene Knight is the author of three books. She is currently working on a commissioned book on Black self-love and joy forthcoming with HarperCollins Canada in 2023. Chelene is the founder of Breathing Space Creative Literary Studio.
