It's The Sunflower Girl Collective where we talk about all things tall, yellow, blooming and great. Every week, starting in June, writer Mernine Ameris and her roommates will discuss culture, social justice, womanism, LGBTQ issues, art, food & writing. We want to indulge and challenge the wheels of progression. There will also be poetry shows every TSGC Saloon Sunday. Get into it.
"After the dance the drum is heavy" said in Haitian Creole, the language of the first free black republic, starting in 1801. America has always been a country in bondage. This weekend, there are white nationalists in my city, congregating at my Metro stop. In protest, these poems are tales of black resistance and power in a time of struggle, especially the impossible tales of a island like Haiti. #Resist #SaloonSundays
