Alexis Pauline Gumbs is a community cherished writer and Black feminist scholar. She was the first scholar to research in the papers of Audre Lorde at Spelman College and June Jordan at Harvard University, and her work to amplify the lessons of Black feminist writers is recognized around the world. . Her work to create the Mobile Homecoming Living Library and Archive with her partner Sangodare is a model for Black LGBTQ intergenerational engagement and care. She is the author of Spill: Scenes of Black Feminist Fugitivity, M Archive: After the End of the World which have transformed and enlivened Black feminist theory and poetics. Her co-edited volume Revolutionary Mothering: Love on the Front Lines offers an expansive vision of mothering as a transformative way of nurturing life, grounded in the leadership of Black lesbian feminist activists of the 1970s and 80s. She and her partner live in Durham, North Carolina where they are in the early stages of creating an intergenerational assisted and independent living community to celebrate and center Black LGBTQ brilliance.
