About the event

Nikki Blak is a literary artist, sociologist, womanist, and intersectional feminist whose thought leadership and radical education work centers marginalized and oppressed populations in the United States. Her specialized areas of study include the social sciences, child development, history, and reproductive justice, which she uses in tandem with her lived experience and ancestral knowledge to create incendiary art, provide unrelenting socio-political critique and activate liberatory praxis to dismantle systems of oppression. She holds a B.A. in Sociology, a Master of Arts in Social Justice and Community Organizing, and is talented at utilizing a critical race theory framework to interrogate anti-Black ideologies and challenge patriarchal cultural norms. As a public speaker and performer, Nikki's work has been featured on radio, national television, and at college universities and historic performance venues across the country. As a celebration of her work, her likeness has been depicted in public art installations throughout Los Angeles for nearly two decades, with the most recent being a Michael Massenburg mosaic, commissioned for the Metro Expo. She is the founder of The Interrupting Series, a virtual workshop and lecture program that creates an anti-oppression curriculum and provides education and resources to interrupt racism and patriarchy. An author, music lover, and proud Los Angeles native, Nikki resides on unceded Tonvga land with her partner and children where she works to make her ancestors proud and leave a just, equitable society for her descendants.
