On May 25, 2010, New Sexualities and Conversations for Change paired up to present “Race and Desire: Black Actors in Adult Film” at the Mosher Alumni House. Panelists Vanessa Blue, Sinnamon Love, and Tyler Knight discussed the politics of race, gender, and sexuality in the pornography industry. Featuring three top Black actors, this panel explored questions of representation, identity, desire, work, and power. Does race construct the market for and production of Black Porn? What are the experiences of Black sex workers and how are their desires represented? How are Black people vital participants in the multi-billion dollar adult entertainment industry?
