From praise songs to war cries to bops you can’t help but dance to, anthems have long been the heartbeat of political liberation. Featuring Rhode Island-based poets and performers Justice Ameer and Chrysanthemum Tran, ANTHEM explores how race and gender politics shape reality for transgender women of color.

An indictment of a nation determined to police freedom and livelihood, yet a rallying declaration of our militant survival, ANTHEM reveals the lasting legacies of trans women who fought before us and celebrates the communities for whom joy is too often an afterthought. Our voices and our fists are raised. ANTHEM is unapologetic in saying: in the shadow of a world that wants us dead, we will not go down without a fight. We will survive.
