Morehouse College Safe Space: Unmuting Our History and Claiming Our Future

Timothy P. Tukes, Jordan Long, Ramon W. Johnson, Kylan Kester, Shareef PhillipsThis project’s topic is significant because we want to provide a historical context for the queer activism on Morehouse’s campus and the formation of the gender and sexual diverse collective, Morehouse College Safe Space. We desire to add to the historical record of the development, contributions, and legacy of Morehouse Safe Space within the AUC. Too often, the media portrays LGBTQ students and LGBTQ organizations as tragically queer and rarely shows the various strides made by us. we desire to see our narratives of resistance and resilience shared to inspire other LGBTQ students to be visible and active on their respective campuses.
