China Aleisse is a Black American, queer woman, who came to Naarm at the end of 2014. Born in Detroit, Michigan, to working class parents, her priority and purpose in life has been to elevate and connect marginalized voices. Her time here has served as an urgent reminder that the imminent threat of Black visibility and resurgence transcends geographical borders, and can only be remedied through mediated efforts to elevate global blackness. Her experience as a writer and events producer has allowed for the development of strategic community engagement, which sets to reposition Black identities as the dominant thread of creative and innovative thought.
