Celebrating and honoring black life
Black warrior poet Audre Lorde wrote, “so it is better to speak/remembering/ we were never meant to survive.”
In the spirit of Audre Lorde’s words, the Black Survival Mixtape Track seeks to celebrate and honor black life, while making media in the face of oppression. We think of the mixtape as a collective space to share practices around the different ways in which we cope, heal and express ourselves when confronted with oppressive systems designed to cut us down. Participants will leave this track with tangible and practical skills and media to build upon and share out.
Coordinators of this track are Reuben Telushkin, Jova Lynne, Casey Rocheteau, Jay-Marie Hill, and Jayy Dodd.
