Opening Sunday, June 4th, from 3PM - 6PM
Beauty Breaks is a participatory art work in the form of a workshop series. This iteration highlights BLACK LINGUISTICS through darkness, sound and ancestry. Amina Ross, will lead Dark and Lovely: undoing the dark vs. light dichotomy in spiritual speech. From this meditative space the workshop will transition into an experimental sound performance and exercise led by A.J McClenon. This session will end with a conversation prompted by Jamillah Hinson on the importance of oral history. This session is accompanied by a walking meditation by Aniysa Alexander.
*********Beauty Breaks is EXCLUSIVELY for black-identified folks, folks of the African diaspora and Afrodesciendentes.*********
