A Revolutionary Summer: In Our Words


September 24, 2017




CityLit Stage

A Revolutionary Summer (ARS) is an intensive critical reading and writing program dedicated to shifting harmful narratives about Black women and girls through both the meaningful study and creation of art and the deliberate application of self-inquiry. For eight Sundays each summer, daughters ages 15 and older gather to discuss works like The Bluest Eye, and Their Eyes Were Watching God. Founder and director Andria Nacina Cole talks with daughters and coordinators to discuss the impact of Black women's art on Black women's inner and outer worlds, and how the program helps them reach beyond race, gender, and story to discover (and live) lives that have not been prescribed for them. The daughters will present excerpts from Ntozake Shange’s “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf”.
