Join us for the fourth installment of «Showing Up for Black Lives»: None of Us are Free Until Black Trans Women are Free! Professor Amy Tahani-Bidmeshki and collaborating students in a critical dialogue to interrogate the ways in which we can continue to show up for Black lives, specifically for Black Trans women. The panel will be composed of the following participants:

Edxie Betts is a Black BlackFoot Filipina/Trans/Queer liberation artist, writer and autonomous organizer based in Los Angeles. Their work is centered around advocating for queer and trans communities, bringing support and attention to political prisoners, restorative-mediation work. They emphasize art as cultural production for the sake of inspiring healing, bringing awareness, counter-narrative, oppositional alternatives, collective liberation through self-organizing, and direct action.

Hari Ziyad is an artist, the author of Black Boy Out of Time: A Never Coming of Age Story (Little A, 2019) and the Editor-in-Chief of the digital publication RaceBaitR. They received their BFA from New York University, where they concentrated in Film and Television and Psychology. Their work is informed by their passion for storytelling and wrestling with identity as a Black, non-binary child of Muslim and Hindu parents while growing up in Cleveland. Hari primarily creates art engaging with identity, race, gender and sexuality, ally politics and the arts.

Leah Ann Mitchell, also known as #lamfemmebear, is an independent Bay Area music producer, songwriter, engineer, vocalist, and live performing artist.

She’s influenced by the works of Imogen Heap, Ellie Goulding, Kate Havnevik, Dr. Dre, Brandy, Timbaland and Salem Al Fakir. #Iamfemmebear’s newest music is an experiment in soulful and rhythmic afro beats mixed with hip-hop jazz, combining and transcending genres.

Davia Spain is a performing artist and scholar who was born and raised in the Bay Area and is currently based in LA. She formerly worked as one of the SF LGBT Center's Trans Employment Program Associates and recently graduated from San Francisco State University (SFSU) with a BA in Visual Anthropology.
