  • Mar 1: Shades of Strength: Black Women's Resistance
    Please join us for a First Friday reception featuring our sixth exhibit, Shades of Strength: Black Women’s Resistance, curated by Furious Flower Carmen R. Gillespie Fellows India Williams and Taylor Nauflett. Poetry is an art form many embrace. It has become a powerful means of resistance for marginalized groups. Black identity and womanhood intersect, prompting a compelling question: What is the essence of being both Black and a woman? Within the realm of conventional and unconventional poetry, Black women are often overlooked and neglected. Yet, they have a profound sense of what it means to be oppressed and to resist. They stand as mediators, storytellers, and resisters; reverberating with untold narratives in the form of verses that protest against the erasure of their experiences. All First Friday receptions at Furious Flower Broadside Gallery are free and open to the public. Light refreshments are provided.
