Giving Birth to Power: Birthing Justice and Womanist Theater

April 30, 2016
10:00am  -  11:30am
Studio Classroom — Level 1

Using story-circles and participatory theatre, guests will explore birthing justice through stories that intersect liberation with giving life to brilliant futures.

Womanist Theatre centers the lives, bodies, and deep pleasures of all Black women and Black people. It employs techniques from Theatre of the Oppressed, Théâtre-Forum Sénégalais, and women’s prose and poetry across the African Diaspora. Honoring La Mulâtresse Solitude and Granny Midwives, the insights and expertise of Black people who have given birth will be invited as power-building and change-making strategies.
