News From Birthright
Today, in 1992, Audre Lorde passed away. NCBLG Founders remember Audre very fondly for her many contributions to NCBLG, commencing with her keynote address to the 3rd World Lesbian and Gay Conference, at Harambee House in 1979. We love you and experience your presence in spirit today and everyday. Thank you!
In 1988, Rev. Renee McCoy, then Executive Director of NCBLG, produced a 14 minute video entitled "NCBLG: The First Decade." The script for the video was written and narrated by Michelle Parkerson, with additional narration provided by Gideon Ferebee and Renee McCoy. The video is now featured on the home page of the Birthright web-site. Birthright: The NCBLG Founders' Legacy Projects (Birthright), has as its mission to recapture and share the histories and the stories of Black LGBT people in order to strengthen and inform broader movements for social justice and change. NCBLG Founders established Birthright at special retreat in the summer of 2010.
