Some of you have been following the
announcements I've been making about the upcoming performance of my
choreopoem, ITAGUA MEJI: A Road & A Prayer, as I have posted
rehearsal update photos and reminders about the show for the past month
or so. The show is still on for Sunday, August 9th, but we have changed
our venue to the Nuyorican Poets Cafe at 236 East 3rd Street, NYC from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. Join us.
This decision to change venues is grounded in my heart-felt
commitment to justice, Black lives, courageous truth-telling, and the
very important choice to walk my talk, always. I am standing in
solidarity with many artists, but most especially, Eboni Hogan, a spoken
word artist and mother who was treated with gross disrespect at The
Sidewalk Cafe (the former venue) as she advocated for proper treatment
for her son. Thanks to Mahogany L. Browne for mobilizing the people and making it possible for the show to go on.
