THE REVIVAL: WOMEN AND THE WORD

INFO
Monday, September 11 2017
7:00 PM

THE REVIVAL: WOMEN AND THE WORD chronicles the US tour of a group of Black lesbian poets and musicians, who become present-day stewards of a historical movement to build community among queer women of color. Their journey to strengthen their community is enriched by insightful interviews with leading Black feminist thinkers and historians, including Dr. Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Nikki Finney, and Alexis Deveaux. As the group tours the country, the film reveals their aspirations and triumphs, as well as the unique identity challenges they face encompassing gender, race, and sexuality. This is a rarely seen look into a special sisterhood – one where marginalized voices are both heard and respected.

Followed by a live BloodLetting reading.  BloodLetting is meant to be raw. It is meant to be honest. It is a night of realness, reflection, and release. BloodLetting is bringing together rad, Queer and Femme POC to use our words in the form of poetry. Listen as we share our truths, bare our souls and find release.  Join us in honoring, amplifying and lifting up the Queer and Femme voices of our community!
