By | 2020-02-19T15:55:15-05:00 February 19th, 2020|Ann Arbor, Neighborhoods|

Artist, activist and author Nia King is a journalist and media-maker based in Philadelphia. She’s inviting the public to a talk at the Ann Arbor District Downtown Library on Saturday, March 14, from 2 to 3 p.m. about her three-volume book series “Queer & Trans Artists of Color.”
“In the books, King interviews fellow queer and trans artists of color about their work, their lives, and “making it – both in terms of success and in terms of survival,” write event organizers. “Each event features a guest artist who will speak about their own practice and lead a group discussion on a topic from the book. Everyone is welcome to attend.”
King’s writing and comics have been featured in a variety of publications including colorlines.com, the East Bay Express and Women & Performance: a journal of feminist theory. In addition, King has spoken at conferences and colleges around North America including Stanford University, Swarthmore College and more.
“She has been hosting and producing ‘We Want the Airwaves’ podcast, on which she interviews queer and trans artists of color about their lives and work since 2013,” organizers said.
