Survivors & Allies From Home: Loud ‘n Unchained: Healing Through Poetry
April 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Presented by T.S. Banks
T. S. Banks is a community organizer, disability justice and mental wellness advocate, poet, and playwright from Madison, WI. A First Wave Scholar and graduate of UW Madison. He is the Founder of Loud ‘N UnChained Theater Co. Which is also home to LNU Black Theater Festival premiering spring 2021. As a Black, trans and queer person with a disability, T believes the Movement for Black Lives must be intersectional and deeply connected to the struggle to end patriarchy and ableism; specifically as it manifests as violence against Black trans and disabled folks. His work also addresses visioning for Black Power, a critique of the medical-industrial complex, psychiatric violence, sanism, Queer Justice, Trans Justice, Disability Justice, and cross-movement solidarity.
Will be streamed on Facebook Live on WCASA’s Facebook page.
