VOICE: A Lens to Black Experiences (Virtual)

Diversity is a call to arms, challenging society to be inclusive. The Black community is richly diverse, comprising many villages. We compare the teachings of forefathers from other places and grandmothers who’d migrated north or across oceans by choice. We are the ancestors in our lineage. We perceive the world differently and filter those experiences through our writing. This reading and Q&A is hosted by the Harlem Writers Guild and features Eartha Watts Hicks, Judy C. Andrews, Angela Dews, Dr. Robert J. Woodbine, Janell Pearson, Marc W. Polite, The Artist Anubis, Minnette Coleman, Kendall Glaspie, and Diane Richards.
