Sunday, November 3, 2019
CityLit Stage – Pier 5 Hotel, Chesapeake Room
711 Eastern Avenue, Baltimore, MD, USA
Co-founder and director Andria Nacina Cole, of the critical reading and writing program, A Revolutionary Summer share experiences with the Daughters. ARS is dedicated to shifting harmful narratives about Black women and girls through both the meaningful study and creation of art and the deliberate application of self-inquiry. A Revolutionary Summer exists “…to keep Black girls whole, to balance the scales, to offer up a Nobel Laureate, radical painter, love song, and afro picked to perfection for every stupid, shallow representation of her.” For eight Sundays every summer up to 21 young women gather to experience and discuss the creative works of consequential Black woman artists. Andria and her stellar team continue to lead Black girls to literature that reflects and affirms them on the CityLit stage.
