Event Description

In celebration of Black History Month 2020, poets/storytellers/spoken word artists Danny SolisFrank Sentwali, and Pam Whitfield offer their own reflections on the human body and how it makes visible illness, health and well-being.

Black feminist writer, Audre Lorde once said, “We recognize that all knowledge is mediated through the body and that feeling is a profound source of information about our lives.”

This embodied knowledge is shaped by the distinct experiences we each have based on our race and gender. So, what do our racialized and gendered bodies know, what do they remember, and what stories do they tell —to others, to ourselves?

Following the performance, guest panelists will respond to the theme and to the poetry. We welcome an open dialogue.

This free performance is made possible with the generous support of the Fuad Mansour fund, and is open to all.
