Hello ,
The May workshops for The Resistance Project are off to a good start. 
I met with Kesia and Lauren and provided info about the project including our Mission and Logo (we’ve settled on the one attached, designed by Devin Newkirk)
 
Continue to Visit our website to see mission, all workshop dates and to register for workshops.
 
Website will updated regularly––so BOOKMARK this site and keep checking for newness!
 
 
Kesia, Lauren, and I explored, through movement, what microaggressions mean.
 
We also discussed what monolithic paradigms mean to us.
 
And I offered this thought:
Microaggressions are very small acts that can be felt in big ways
…while
Monolithic Paradigms––particularly those around race and gender––are often built on narrow/small concepts or stereotypes 
 
We’ll continue tonight
 
Coming up tonight…
 
Join us tonight, Wed May 8 at 6-9pm 
We will start with featured presenter, Dr. Tara Green, author of Reimagining the Middle Passage: Black Resistance in Literature, Television, and Song. Dr. Green will speak on the myth of the flying African as a story of resistance and empowerment.


Followed by our continuing performance workshop
