Black Girl Saturday School: Jam Session

Black girls are deep wellsprings of knowledge, curiosities, and musings. Often these qualities are stifled by social narratives that say “you don’t know nothing! You’re too young!” By exploring the theme of Art as Memory & Narrative, Dr. LaShay Harvey will lead participants of all ages through an immersive experience where we will study the language, history and culture of Black Girlhood through contemporary fiber works presented in BLACK WOMAN GENIUS: Elizabeth Talford Scott—Tapestries of Generation. Aliyah Bonnette, a Black Woman Genius featured artist, will join in a discussion of her work during this session. The session culminates in a storytelling “jam session” performance inspired by the courageous journey back to our girlhood with the expressed intention of reconnecting to the inherent brilliance of Black Girls. All ages and stages are welcome to participate. Recommended for ages 18+ and older. Black Girl Saturday School® is the place where the study of Black girls’ and women’s lives is valued, appreciated, cultivated, immersive, healing, restorative, grounding, available, continual, fun, and more.
