Event description

Description

On Friday, November 3, join the Black Ladies Brunch Collective for a special evening poetry reading at the African American Museum in Philadelphia.

Sharing work from their first anthology of poems Not Without Our Laughter, the members of the Black Ladies Brunch Collective will chronicle their own journeys of resistance, survival and joy through litanies to desire, pop icon Prince, and bourbon.

In addition to performances by this talented and diverse collective, the event will include a curated OPEN MIC celebrating local Philadelphia Black women, femmes, gender non-conforming and non-binary folks. Bring poetry to share. Copies of Not Without Our Laughter will be available for purchase.

The Black Ladies Brunch Collective was founded in 2015 to uplift the voices of Black women through poetry. Collective members include Saida Agostini, Anya Creightney, Teri Cross Davis, celeste doaks, Tafisha Edwards and Katy Richey.



This event is presented in conjunction with AAMP’s fall exhibition Gardens of the Mind: Echoes of the Feminine View and the Institute of Contemporary Art’s exhibition Speech/Acts.
Gardens of the Mind: Echoes of the Feminine View is on view through January and features large scale installation, sculpture, painting, photography and printmaking by Barbara Bullock, Martha Jackson Jarvis, E.J. Montgomery, Joiri Minaya and Glynnis Reed. These artists consider our relationship with nature and how the mind itself is a field, which is developed and nurtured to promote creative, spiritual and intellectual growth.
On view from through December 23, 2017, Speech/Acts features new and recent works by artists Jibade-Khalil Huffman, Steffani Jemison, Tony Lewis, Tiona Nekkia McClodden, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, and Martine Syms and explores experimental black poetry and how the social and cultural constructs of language have shaped black American experiences.
