About the Event

Join us for a thought-provoking cinematic journey into the untold stories of renowned blues singers and their alternative sexualities at our special Black History Month event, organized by the BEDI Books and More Club. As we delve into the past to recapture our lost and hidden history, "T'Ain't Nobody's Bizness: Queer Blues Divas of the 1920s" promises to present the facts with an unsensational yet entertaining approach. 

The film explores how some of these remarkable women, despite societal pressures, strove to maintain secrecy about their same-sex activities, especially as they turned to religion in their later years. Join us for engaging in Q&A sessions to encourage dialogue and understanding. This event aims to celebrate the rich tapestry of Black history, acknowledging the complexities and intersections that have often been overlooked. The discussion will be moderated by Gregory Gayle from the College of Psychology.

 Refreshements will be provided.

A Zoom link will be provided upon registration.
