Welcome to Black Technologies: BGG2SM Season 4 Recap!

Welcome to the O. Estelle Butler Intragalactic Train Station, where all of our Milky Way is always within your reach. Please follow the illuminated paths to the ticket kiosk, your train line, and other needs you may have about the station.

This is Omisade Burney-Scott and welcome to ‘Black Technologies of the Menopausal Multiverse.’ The voices and stories featured in this exhibition include our guests from Season 4 of the Black Girl’s Guide to Surviving Menopause and myself. But what exactly are Black Technologies? These are methods, strategies, and formulas those born with uteri have learned and adopted in their lifetime in order to survive, thrive, and move in the fullness of themselves as they navigate the liminal journey of menopause. Some technologies picked up on the way include but are not limited to spiritual practices & embodiment, tarot and other forms of divination, community as praxis, intentional intergenerationally, and the dispelling and exploration of gender and gender roles. Throughout this exhibit, you will hear varying perspectives on womanhood and queerness.
