Radical Reading Room at The Studio Museum
Radical Reading Room x Well-Read Black Girl
August 10, 2019
Studio Museum 127, 429 W. 127th St.
Led by Glory Edim of Well-Read Black Girl, this edition of Storytelling Saturdays is an experiential workshop designed to introduce the concepts of self-care and wellness through literature. Participants will be guided through a literary meditation of Sister Love: The Letters of Audre Lorde and Pat Parker 1974–1989. Through group letter writing, meditation, and reviewing the foundations of self-preservation, attendees will collectively experience Audre Lorde and Pat Parker. Participants are encouraged to read this excerpt of Sister Love for this workshop. Additional readings will be provided.
Throughout the run of Radical Reading Room at Studio Museum 127, drop by on the first and third Saturdays of each month to contribute your text to the community archive and discuss its personal and collective importance. Centering radical approaches to storytelling, programs in this series may take the form of writing workshops, zine-making workshops, or live oral histories led by members of our creative community.
This program is accessible by wheelchair and other forms of walking assistance.
This program was originally scheduled for July 20, but due to the impending heatwave, it is rescheduled to the current date of August 10.
