ScienceCampus visiting professor Jeannette Jones will be giving a guest lecture with Q&A in Stuttgart on 19 July. Titled “I Can’t Breathe”: Gender, Sexuality, Nation and #BLM, it is being held on the occasion of 10 years Black Lives Matter.

In her talk, Prof. Dr. Jones will reflect on the 10-year history of the Black Lives Matter Movement through the lenses of gender, class, and nation. Specifically, it discusses the ways in which BLM—begun by three cis-gender Black women in response to the acquittal of George Zimmerman for the vigilante killing of Trayvon Martin – “from the start” included an expansive, complex political and social justice agenda that addresses reproductive justice, LGBTQ lives, policing, economic justice, heath care, etc.
