Black women’s voices have been historically marginalized, generalized, ignored, overlooked, and devalued. Black Ladies Brunch Collective aims to uplift and inspire with their new collection, Not Without Laughter. Cave Canem fellows include: Saida Agostini, a queer Afro-Guyanese poet and social worker, Anya Creightney, a programs specialist at the Poetry & Literature Center in the Library of Congress, Teri Ellen Cross Davis, whose first collection Haint was published in 2016, poet and journalist celeste doaks, author of Cornrows and Cornfields, Tafisha A. Edwards, author of The Bloodlet; and Katy Richey, who hosts the Sunday Kind of Love reading series open mic at Busboys and Poets in Washington D.C.
