“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.
