QCC Continuing Education: The Power of Words
**Please note: This is a Continuing Education Course ONLY for students who are enrolled and have completed the Queer Competency Certification program.**
A discussion of the power language to name our experiences. In this 90-minute session Assétou Xango brings forth questions that stir the shadowy, unseen parts of identity and call them into the light through the power of words.
Assétou Xango (Ah-say-too SEAN-go), also known as the Dark Goddess Poet, uses Spoken Word to dismantle the harmful, colonial binaries that bind us. As a black, pansexual, polyamorous, genderqueer, womxn, Xango exists as a representation of the in-between, the darkness that serves as the mirror to our shadow self. Xango’s other-world guides us to accept the parts of ourselves that have been deemed irredeemable.
