Elijah Ndoumbé, majoring in African + African American Studies, and Feminist, Gender + Sexuality Studies, is a queer creative of the Black Diaspora who uses writing, film, and photography to amplify the voices and stories of folks whose narratives often, in their words, "go untold, or are shoved under
the rug.” The artist seeks to challenge the dominant narrative around Black, Brown and Queer bodies as pathologized beings. Their knowledge is rooted in a Black Queer and Feminist praxis; knowledge acquired through organizing in and with community, the academy, and collective art practice. Post-graduation they will be returning to Cape Town, South Africa, to work with the Sex Workers' Education and Advocacy Taskforce (SWEAT).
