|Activist, author and award-winning performance poet Sonya Renee Taylor spoke on campus on Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2020 at 6 p.m. in Witherspoon Cinema as the Womxn’s Herstory Month keynote speaker.
The event began with an invitation for discussion, as Taylor said she prefers her events to be mutually participatory. She also told the audience that a counselor was available in the back of the room throughout the entirety of the event for anyone who would like to seek them out.
“I’m interested in love that challenges systems and structures,” said Taylor as she delved into radical self-love. Taylor is founder of The Body is Not an Apology, a digital media and education company promoting radical self-love and body empowerment as the “foundational tool for social justice and global transformation.”
