Today: Daughter Dreams: Revolutionary Mother’s Day Conversation #1

7 05 2015

Screen shot 2015-04-24 at 9.09.13 PMJoin Eternal Summer of the Black Feminist Mind for the first in a series of Revolutionary Mother’s Day conversations.

Thursday May 7th at 6pm at the L-Room (107 West Geer St. Durham, NC)

This first session is about mothers and daughters and dreaming and will feature wisdom from wise mamas in Durham including

Michelle Lanier

Serena Sebring

Dannette Sharpley

Rachael Derello

Inspired by Audre Lorde’s practice of dream-mothering (which included keeping track of her own dreams, applying lessons from her dream and her children’s dreams to her parenting, and making a space for her daughter to share dreams with her) and by the impact of her dreams on her life-saving poetry, this will be an evening of dream-sharing and poem making.

Refreshments based on the favorite foods of the wise mamas will be served and copies of Laboring Positions which features Alexis Pauline Gumbs’s essay “Daughter Dreams and the Teaching Life of Audre Lorde” will be available for sale.

All are welcome!
