‘Creation Is Everything You Do’: Ntozake Shange, The Sisterhood, and Black Collectivity
The Shange Magic Project celebrates Ntozake Shange and The Sisterhood, the vibrant community of black women writers who began gathering in Brooklyn and Manhattan in the 1970s and went on to produce classics of black feminist literature. Speakers Patricia Spears Jones, Kimberly Springer, Mecca Jamilah Sullivan, and Courtney Thorsson help us consider the lessons earlier groups offer young women today about organizing and cultivating artistic communities. Stop by the immersive Shange Experience in the Milstein Center throughout the day.
