Enjoy a Harlem Renaissance speak easy, with inspiration by @charlenecarruthers, queer feminist community organizer and writer, who will discuss her book, Unapologetic. Laugh with noted stand-up comedian @sampsonmccormick, whose act deftly weaves religion, sexuality, racism, life, and politics into an enlightening and sidesplitting event. Listen to the award-winning spoken word artist 2Deep, and also engage in a lesson in developing your own spoken word, poetry and performative art around social justice. #BlackLGBTQHistory #APeoplesJourney #ComingOutDay 📸: "Gladys Bentley: America's Greatest Sepia Player -- The Brown Bomber of Sophisticated Songs," Collection of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.
