Been too long fam. So here’s what’s on the AABW agenda. We’re also celebrating the 1 year of the one woman show debut in the Hollywood Fringe Festival by giving you free access to watch until the end of this month at: https://youtu.be/fYQ1SsYXxdY
Shanara had a zoom call this week, that triggered this response to the lack of empathy for traumatized Black men, living in a time where they could be the next #AhmaudArbery . Shanara also shares part of a scene & poem from her one woman show, that deals specifically with being Black in certain neighborhoods.
We are concluding Women Herstory with A Black Herstory Moment interviewing Dr. Dina Bennett, Curatorial Director for the National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM). Scheduled to open in Downtown Nashville Labor Day 2020, the National Museum of African American Music will be a 56,000-square-foot facility that will encourage visitors to discover the central role African Americans have played in shaping and creating all genres of American music. More info at https://nmaam.org "In the swift whirl of time, music is a constant, reminding us of what we were and of that toward which we aspired. Art thou troubled? Music will not only calm, it will ennoble thee." - Ralph Ellison: Living with Music. This was a poignant quote Dr. Bennett offered in her interview. Books suggested were: "Warmth of Other Suns" by Isabel Wilkerson "Barracoon" by Zora Neale Hurston
