Kennedy Anderson is a third year student at Yale College concentrating in the Digital Humanities. Her interests center the Black speculative arts and the importance of Black authorship in the archive. She was recently awarded as a Studio Fellow under the Yale Center for Collaborative Arts & Media (CCAM) for the
2022-2023 academic year where she hosted an exhibition titled Feeling Blue: Experiencing the Black, Female, Queer. Kennedy’s research is focused in the psychosocial relationships between Black women and the queerness of the Black slave body. Kennedy serves as the Administrative Assistant to The SASH
Lab and works to co-facilitate the Dreamer Girls Project, an HIV and drug use prevention program for high school aged Black girls in New Jersey. She is excited to gain research experience toward her doctoral pursuit and to strengthen her community relationships in both New Haven and New Jersey.
If she is not binge watching the latest Shonda Rhimes TV series, Kennedy can be found in her kitchen perfecting her favorite cultural recipes from scratch or traveling abroad with her family
