Continuing Eternal Summer of the Black Feminist Mind’s work with Ntozake Shange’s classic novel Sassafrass, Cypress and Indigo, we present the Sassafrass Saturday Salon.    Sassafrass is an oldest daughter, a weaver, and a visionary, she designs her home in reverence to revolutionary ancestors, she breathes yoga while she cooks spinach,  and her mantra is “Creation is everything you do.  Make something.”

Sassafrass is also struggling to leave an abusive relationship with another visionary artist and walking through a spiritual journey to become a mother and to return to herself.   The Sassafrass Saturday Salon is a loving, eclectic sacred space specifically for women and genderqueer folks OF AFRICAN DESCENT/ASCENT to gather and engage in the Sassafrass arts of cooking, crafting, breathing, singing and stretching.

We know that these gathering, while building the healing resource of black genderqueer people and women as kindred is also an offering to our ancestors to bring energy and transformation to all of us who are healing from past, present or intergenerationally held abusive relationships.
