Queer History: Notes on a Siren

Join the Seaport Museum and Justice Jamal Jones for a screening of their film essay, “Notes on a Siren,” which intertwines Black and African spirituality and offers a thought-provoking narrative on transformation. Jones will introduce the film and La Sirène, a mermaid from Haitian Vodou. Together we will see how through this work, the siren becomes a vessel to explore archetypes of modern Black Queerness and Transness, and a powerful symbol serving as a portal for transformation and transcendence.

Content is appropriate for anyone ages 12 and up. Advanced registration is encouraged for this free event.
