In a sold out event, co-curated with Montreal’s Librarie Drawn & Quarterly in the Ukrainian Federation Hall on September 22, Roxane Gay and Rachel Zellars had an intimate and informative conversation.
From the McGill Daily
“I was compelled to write about Sandra Bland because all too often, when we talk about police misconduct and police violence, we talk about Black men. And, that’s understandable, and that conversation needs to happen, but we also need to talk about how Black women are equally subjected to violence from police. […] And when these inexplicable things happen, I want answers – and there are no answers to be found. But writing offers at least a sense of solace – a sense of trying to make sense of that which cannot be made sense of.”
