Our Words: Black LGBTSTGNC Performances, Installation, & Video

Friday, February 21, 2020 - 6:30pm to 9:30pm

You are invited to “Our Words”.

Performances, installation, and video projection combine to create space for Black LGBTSTGNC stories curated by ourselves. Produced by Acacia Rodriguez in partnership with the Audre Lorde Project.

"Our Words" is part of Myrtle Avenue Partnership's Black Artstory Month. Black Artstory month 2020 salutes Fort Greene and Clinton Hill African-American artists and activists that creatively and courageously wielded their words in pursuit of a higher cause through the SOME WORDS festival. The title for Black Artstory Month 2020 is inspired by Audre Lorde’s poem Coal. Myrtle Avenue’s Black Artstory Month is an annual series, begun in 2013, that elevates and celebrates this neighborhood’s long-standing history as a haven for Black artistry, with past themes including Brooklyn style, healing, notions of home, and remembering.
