On January 25, Sikivu was featured on PFLAG’s Something to Talk About Live show, subtitled “Black History Should be Celebrated All Year Long”. The discussion centered on creating safe spaces for LGBTQIA+ youth and Black parents/caregivers of Black queer youth, as well as the importance of centering Black queer affirming books, curricula, and school climate assessments.
From PFLAG’s Youtube channel:
“As we head into Black History Month, at a time when books written by Black authors are being removed from shelves and classes about Black history are being removed from school curriculums, finding joy seems difficult. Join us on Thursday, January 25 at 4:30 PM ET / 1:30 PM PT for our monthly episode of Something to Talk About Live! where we will discuss “Black Joy Is For Black Queer Youth, Too,” by Amaris Ramey which appeared on parents.com. We are excited to welcome Sikivu Hutchinson, an American feminist, novelist, playwright and director, as our guest.”
