Ode to the Black Woman: A Night of Poetry and Song & Open Mic hosted by The City of Boston Equity and Inclusion Racial Justice Cabinet

You are invited | Registration required | Please post to calendar | An Ode to Black Woman. These poems and songs are in honor of International Black Women’s History month and are meant to highlight the strength and resilience of Black women. Who is she, described as “a female human of African descent. A subject of extreme abuse and expression based upon the inaccurate or faulty perception of inferiority by the oppressor. Scientific: Mother of civilization; one from whom all life comes forth. One who subscribes and practices thoughts and deeds which promote unity among people of color. Synonyms: Wife, Mother, Sister, Leader, Teacher, Warrior. Adjectives: Strong, Intelligent, Beautiful, Compassionate, Tireless.” We gather to celebrate her; The Black Woman! She who has no choice but to wear the multiple hats, to do the work no one else does, who is the first to rise and last to sleep. The City of Boston Equity and Inclusion Cabinet, celebrates her, we see her, we appreciate her; The Black Woman. A Night dedicated to all Black Women through Poetry and Song.

A Live Visual rendering will be done by Sagie of her interpretation of the Black Woman.

A safe space to create tribute to the Black Woman. Come out and hear from featured artists or take a turn on the mic.
