In The Wake of The Quiet Hours: Black Women In The Wake
In conjunction with the widely acclaimed "The Black Woman Is God" exhibit and the TBWIG, "Satellite Exhibit" at Ashara Ekundayo Gallery in Oakland, this month's Oakland Peace Center, "In The Wake Of The Quiet Hours" pays a special tribute to black women. Participants and visitors are invited to bring words, works, snippets, and quotes of black women writers as the way into our grief, song, poetry, story, community ritual, and healing, "Black Women In The Wake". Angela Hennessy, one of the featured artists in the Ashara Ekundayo satellite exhibit, continues in her role as co-facilitator and will help us sit with, speak with, and hear from black women's lives and deaths through the reading her manifesto. Artist-In-Residence, Marvin K. White will bring a word from his black women deadcestors/sisters through a sermonic offering.
Who are the black women literary voices that are holding space on your bookshelf, in your heart, or on your mind? Bring them and read them aloud, so that they may be in a contemporary conversation with one another.
