Event Description

An Evening with Walidah Imarisha

Walidah Imarisha will discuss Octavia’s Brood, a new anthology she recently co-edited that brings together a selection of ground-breaking science fiction from social justice movements. Walidah is a poet, journalist, and fiction writer, who has taught in Portland State University's Black Studies Department, Oregon State University's Women Gender Sexuality Studies Department, and Southern New Hampshire University's English Department. For the past six years, she has presented all over Oregon as a public scholar with Oregon Humanities' Conversation Project on topics such as Oregon Black history, alternatives to incarceration, and the history of hip hop. One half of the poetry duo Good Sista/Bad Sista, she has published poetry in a wide variety of journals and performed at venues across the country. Walidah also spent six years on the board of the Central Committee for Conscientious Objectors, and helped to found the Human Rights Coalition, a group of prisoners’ families and former prisoners with three chapters in Pennsylvania.
