By popular demand, writers from the Givens Black Writers Collaborative Retreat Program, Activist and community artist, as they
share their fierce unapologetic, bold, spicy and healing works. Weaving DNA threads from the bayous of the Americas, Haiti, Nigeria,
Brazil, to North Minneapolis and around the globe, see and hear the spicy words sprinkled with sound, and movement. A celebration of voices not only to be heard in our communities, in our collective, but throughout, as we journey, teach, lead, and mentor. You definitely want to hear what they have to say.
