Living Land Acknowledgement facilitated by the Lenape Center
Tuesday, November 9th @ 1pm

Lenape Center has the mission of continuing Lenapehoking, the Lenape homeland through community, culture, and the arts. Since 2009, Lenape Center based in Manhattan and led by Lenape elders has created programs, exhibitions, workshops, performances, symposia, land acknowledgment, and ceremonies to continue our Lenape presence. We push back against our erasure and seed the ground with Lenape consciousness for the next generations.

Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore – Reading of The Freezer Door
Tuesday, November 16th @ 3pm

Join us to hear from Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore as she holds a reading and discussion about her latest book, The Freezer Door.

‘A meditation on the trauma and possibility of searching for connection in a world that enforces bland norms of gender, sexual, and social conformity.

The Freezer Door records the ebb and flow of desire in daily life. Crossing through loneliness in search of communal pleasure in Seattle, Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore exposes the failure and persistence of queer dreams, the hypocritical allure of gay male sexual culture, and the stranglehold of the suburban imagination over city life. Ferocious and tender, The Freezer Door offers a complex meditation on the trauma and possibility of searching for connection in a world that relentlessly enforces bland norms of gender, sexual, and social conformity while claiming to celebrate diversity.”

Sponsored in partnership with the Women and Gender Studies Program and SafeZone.

The Unafraid

THE UNAFRAID is a feature-length documentary that follows the lives of three DACA students in Georgia, a state that has banned them from attending its top public universities, and from qualifying for in-state tuition at any other public college. Using observational footage shot over three years, THE UNAFRAID tells the personal stories of a group of friends connected by an underground movement called Freedom University. Through the stories of Alejandro, Silvia, and Aldo, viewers learn what it's like to be both a young American and undocumented in the U.S. at a time when anti-immigrant sentiment is growing, emboldened by a President who has issued orders to end DACA and restrict immigration. The narratives of their lives will intersect at protests and rallies, and then expand out from this unifying force to the personal daily challenges faced by them and their families. THE UNAFRAID goes beyond the media’s portrayal of the ‘dreamer’ poster child and truly humanizes the experience of undocumented and DACA students, their families and communities.

This event is offered in partnership with the KCC Diversity Symposium Committee’s Fall 2021 Equity and Anti-Racism Summit (EARS).
