Episode Info:

Steven G. Fullwood was the archivist who founded the “In The Life Archive” at the Schomberg Center for Research in Black Culture, a part of the New York Public library. Originally from Toledo, Ohio, he earned his Bachelor’s degree in English and Communications from the University of Toledo and his master’s in library science from Clark University in Atlanta. As a writer, His published works include Black Gay Genius: Answering Joseph Beam's Call (co-edited by Charles Stephens), To Be Left with the Body, (co-edited by Cheryl Clarke), and Carry the Word: A Bibliography of Black LGBTQ Books (co-edited by Lisa C. Moore). His Nomadic Archivist Project documents and preserves the African Diasporic experience.  This initiative partners with organizations, institutions, and individuals to establish, preserve, and enhance collections. Fullwood lives to document the history of people of African descent. He believes it is a privilege to do so for many good reasons: primarily, doing so allows him to pay the appropriate respect to people of African descent in Africa, as well as in the African diaspora. Fullwood is also the Vice President of Fire & Ink. Fire & Ink is recognized as the most influential supporter and advocate for GLBT writers of African descent. He is currently at work on his first film short, Timothy, or Timothy to the Future. This vérité-styled documentary follows Timothy DuWhite, a 27-year-old black, gay, HIV + poet as he rehearses his first one-man show, Neptune, a story about where the unloved go to find love.
