Harvard Welcomes Writer and Activist, Darnell Moore

This Wednesday, November 7, 2012, Harvard University’s Kennedy School will welcome nationally recognized writer and activist, Darnell Moore. As part of The Audre Lorde Human Right Series, Darnell will use this platform to give an engaging discussion. He has written extensively, with his work appearing on the president’s blog, The Feminist Wire and The Huffington Post to name just a few. Under The Huffington Post’s “Gay Voices,” he writes a bi-monthly column along with Wade Davis, II on black manhood and queer politics, “Tongues Untied.” The column’s title pays homage to Marlon Riggs’s acclaimed film, Tongues Untied, which speaks extensively about the marginalization that gay men of color face and the process of navigating that identity. For Darnell, his work too imbibes these notions and continually addresses that reality.

This year, Darnell received the 2012 Humanitarian Award from the American Conference on Diversity for his advocacy work in Newark, N.J., among many other accomplishments. Darnell continues to be a trailblazer in the LGBT community, specifically advancing LGBT communities of color through his critical work.

If you’re able attend, you definitely do not want to miss Darnell's thought-provoking conversation.

From hard news coverage of the law’s repeal to feature length stories about the social and cultural aspects of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” much of the mainstream media has so far succeeded in providing fair and accurate reporting from a range of perspectives.
