In anticipation of the historic 50th year anniversary of the Stonewall Riots (the landmark black and brown-led 1969 rebellion that gave birth to the modern LGBT rights movement)—the Baldwin Hansberry Project will partner with the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture to host a special one day symposium entitled “After Stonewall: 50 Years of Black and Brown Resistance.”

The keynote event of this symposium will be a staged public intergenerational dialogue between leading black LGBT activists reflecting on the various “lessons” that Stonewall teach contemporary activists (i.e. the importance of letting Transwomen lead; the political effectiveness of disruptive direct action; and the power of multiracial organizing). During the symposium, we will launch the hashtag #BlackStonewall50 as a public awareness campaign that highlights the black and brown roots of Stonewall.
