Panel Discussion: I Love Being Black
March 17 * 7-9 pm
388 Atlantic Avenue
The Black Lives Matter movement is not only a political phenomena but a cultural one as well as black people reclaim the beauty and power of their blackness. In the February issue of The Indypendent, a group of six black writers wrote first-person pieces about why they love being black. Three of those writers – Nicholas Powers, Jamara Wakefield and Brittany Williams – will join performance artist Lady Dragonfly on March 17 in the Brooklyn in a conversation about their own experiences of learning to love their culture and themselves despite the deep-seated societal hostility to blackness grounded in 400 years of white supremacy. Panelists will read from their essays on why they love being black. Members of the audience are also encouraged to write up and share their thoughts on why they love being black.
