People Like Us (PLUS) Teens
PLUS Teens focuses specifically of the issues African American youth face. We share and discuss media, stories, and histories, and we view and create art to create a dialogue and narrative around the struggles our participants face. Not only does this group develop a strong analysis of power and access, but participants learn to politicize self-love, and recognize it as key to the liberation struggle. This group draws heavily on the wisdom of queer Black folks and ancestors before them.  For more info, contact: T Banks | tsbanks87[at]gmail.com
