SAGE Celebrates Black History Month 2018

 In: Events

Happy Black History Month!

Throughout February, we will be profiling SAGE participants of color as well as prominent LGBT African-Americans including Audre Lorde, James Baldwin, and Marsha P. Johnson.

As we shine a spotlight to honor them, we recognize that the legacies of these individuals live on in many ways. We see their work carrying on at places like the Sylvia Rivera Law Project—a legal aid organization that serves LGBT people of color—and the Audre Lorde Project, an LGBT community organizing center in New York.

By showcasing stories from SAGE constituents of color all month, we hope to provide some insight into what it’s like to live at the intersection of African-American, LGBT, and older adult identities.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram so you don’t miss a second of our coverage this month. —Grace Jones
