Notes From The 'Ovary Office': A Celebration of Wombin - Conversation 2061 - REQUIRES TICKET

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

“Notes From the ‘Ovary Office’: A Celebration of Wombin” features black female poets who read strong, activist-based, shameless poetry that places the pussy, front and center (so to speak.) The poets read in a “court-like” setting bringing up “witnesses” or demanding “order in the court.” These Wombin, lifting their own voices, are not asking permission because they’ve birthed every world into existence. Come honor and listen to your mothers, sisters, daughters, wives, teachers and the Gawd that speaks through them. The Ovary Office was founded by V.Kali, the poetry director at The World Stage.
