MOTHER TONGUE: MONOLOGUES FOR TRUTH BEARING WOMEN, FOR EMERGING SONS AND OTHER KEEPERS OF THE FLAME
MOTHER TONGUE: MONOLOGUES FOR TRUTH BEARING WOMEN, FOR EMERGING SONS AND OTHER KEEPERS OF THE FLAME.

Mother Tongue: Monologues for Truth Bearing Women, Emerging Sons and Other Keepers of the Flame is a call for public deliberation! With beautiful imagery, evocative music and bold choreography, poets and actors dramatizing and performing community will speak of silences, allowances, sexual and racial dynamics that remain intensely controversial. Black men and boys will share center stage, ushering in a time for truth, a time for troubling the waters, and for claiming what's overdue. We continue to amplify the voices of Black women through testimony about histories and legacies of sexual violence enacted upon their own bodies. Black male allies will share center stage as powerful responders, challenging us as witnesses to take imaginative leaps from present states of institutionalized violence to futures where we possess the language and tools to dismantle rape culture at every stage and across generations.
