All Ages | ADVANCE ticketed event: $12 Students, $20 Adults, Group Packages available

 

 

From Beyonce’s “Formation” and Chaka Khan’s “I’m Every Woman”, to Oprah’s film “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks”, Ava DuVernay’s tv series “Queen Sugar” and Cicely Tyson’s role in “The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman”  these women and their creative work have helped to liberate, educate, empower, unite and heal communities of color. However, corrupted societal messaging, attitudes and media imagery have all attacked the soul, strength and creative integrity of black and brown women to something more fearful, aggressive and less valuable. With a large percentage of women of color succeeding in the arts, music, and entertainment fields, there seems to be underlying connections between the exploitation of womanism, being an artist/musician/creator, telling one’s truth and uplifting underserved communities.   

 

 

Join us for a panel discussion as we hear from Boston’s black and brown female  artists, musicians and creative entrepreneurs discuss their definition of womanism, and how they each use their creative work to engage diverse audiences, shift culture and/or contribute to social movements across Greater Boston.
