Hi Meltingpot Readers,
If anyone is in the New York City area and wants to go see a truly unique exhibit, they should check out photographer, Laylah Amatullah Barrayn's latest solo show, Her Words as Witness: Women Writers of the African Diaspora at Restoration Plaza's Skylight Gallery in Brooklyn.
It just opened and I haven't been yet, but just the idea of a visual exhibit honoring 35 contemporary Black female writers from around the world-- many of whom are friends and muses of mine -- makes me want to hop the next train back to Brooklyn.
Some of the writers featured include, Edwidge Danticat, Sonia Sanchez, Bernice McFadden and Elizabeth Alexander. The exhibit runs through March 31, 2012. For more information and an inspiring taste from the opening reception, check out the slide show on Patch.com.
Enjoy the weekend.
