Stonewall responds to a system of education which perpetrates teachings of white supremacy,
pro-colonialism, Capitalism, US exceptionalism and the inevitability of war, and which hides
the historical contributions of women, people of color and members of the queer community.
Borrowing from the tactics used by the US system of popular education as well as those of the
Religious Right, Stonewall re/visions a famous historical event- the US Civil War- and a historical
figure- General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson- through a queer lens, challenging the hetero-normalizing
of our founding fathers and assumes a queer analysis as culturally dominant.
