Interview with Gwendalynn Roebke, a poet, artist, and scholar who is currently finishing their undergraduate degree at the University of Colorado Boulder. Gwendalynn discusses their efforts related to student activism on campus, where they have started two student groups at CU, including the Radical BIPOC Womxn/Femmes Collective. Gwendalynn also recently participated in a CU Scholar Strike webinar on addressing anti-Black racism on campus. Within this discussion of activism, Gwendalynn weaves in notions of community, art, and poetry as an integral part of surviving, thriving, and dreaming into a future of radical belonging.
