Upcoming Appearances

“I love it when Spectra Speaks…” 

“… an empowering, accessible, and interesting lecturer.”

Spectra is a highly requested speaker at high schools, colleges, conferences, community forums, youth programs and other forums for social change.

A daughter of Africa, and immigrant to the United States, Spectra’s hands-on experience as a community organizer, movement-builder, and discussion facilitator for almost a decade makes her a great Spectra on potentially divisive topics, including — but not limited to:

  • diversity within affinity groups
  • social justice movement building
  • creating safe spaces for queer youth
  • immigrant and diaspora visibility in POC spaces
  • empowering girls through media
  • mental health in communities of color
  • the intersection of gender, culture, nationality, and sexuality
  • accountable leadership, and much more.

In addition to planning and coordinating a very heavy roster of critical discussions, panels, and community-building events via her role as Founding Director and Executive Editor at QWOC+ Boston, Spectra also produces via her social enterprise, Spectra Events,  a wide variety of community-based literary and performance art events intended to increase awareness and promote more dialog around issues pertaining to gender, culture, and sexuality.



No events. Self-care break.
