OUR STORY? with Jamaican-Canadian Writer & Artist Mary Wright Tues March 8th 6-8pm

What’s our story that needs to be told, or be heard?  For centuries we, the people of African Descent and our ancestors, have been listening to and enduring the traumatic stereotypes, misrepresentations and misappropriations of our histories.

This International Women’s Day Forum encourages our fellow women of African Descent to come together to share our stories and experiences through our traditional forms of expressions, styles and production in the fine arts, orally (literature and spoken word), dance and music. 

The CWSE is co-sponsoring this event with WIAprojects' Associate Director, writer, artist and women's activist, Mary Wright.
