Join INFORUM for Pride Month and a conversation about the intersectionality of faith, sexuality, blackness and gender with author Darnell L. Moore, as he discusses his new memoir, No Ashes in the Fire: Coming of Age Black and Free in America. This will be an empowering and insightful evening that you won’t want to miss.

Darnell L. Moore is regarded as “one of the most influential black writers and thinkers of our time,” centering his work largely around the topics of liberation, self-love and tolerance. Moore is an embodiment of resilience, having endured traumas such as narrowly escaping being burned alive at 14 years old by homophobic neighborhood children, suffering a near-fatal heart attack at 19 years old..., and enduring poverty and brutality in his childhood home. Today, Moore is an award-winning writer and activist, a leader in the Black Lives Matter movement and a champion of justice. His writing centers around anti-racist, feminist, pro-queer of color and anti-colonial thought and has taken him to The Huffington Post, Ebony Magazine and many other publications. Moore is also a renowned scholar in black Christian thought and has spoken at Harvard Divinity School and been a visiting scholar at the Yale Divinity School and Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality at New York University. This program is in association with San Francisco Pride
