Event description

Description

This writing workshop is especially for those of us brave enough to envision a visionary liberated future during a time when the present seems bleak. Based on her short story "Evidence" from the collection Octavia's Brood, Sista Docta Alexis Pauline Gumbs will facilitate a guided process that allows us to vision seven generations into the future and to grapple with the time we are living through now: the time of the silence breaking. Using meditations, letter writing, listening, ancestral and futuristic connection and legacies of earlier Black feminist futurists including June Jordan and Audre Lorde, we will close 2016 with the energy of multitudes, with a profound connection to those who have crossed over during this time and with revolutionary availability to the future generations are calling for from us.
