BRIC Stands With Our Black Community

A Letter From Our President:

In this moment of profound reckoning for our country, I'm stunned by having witnessed so brazenly the ongoing consequences of whiteness being weaponized against Black bodies.

An evening of performance, poetry, and stories reflecting on what words need to be shared in these dynamic and challenging times, curated by the Intergenerational Community Arts Council (ICAC). It's a time to testify, to witness, and to be praised so we can hope and heal together. SHARE! SOME WORDS is a special Black History Month edition of the SHARE! performance series, a University Settlement tradition that honors artists at every stage of development on one equal platform.

With special guests D. Cross and Zakeia Tyson Cross, featured poet Timothy DuWhite, members of the Fort Greene artistic community, and hosted by the ICAC.

Presented in partnership with BRIC and University Settlement’s The Performance Project.  Light refreshments provided.

This program is presented as a part of Black Art Story Month, a month of FREE events, programs, installations, and digital interventions that celebrate the legacy of Black creativity and the power of words created by Black artists and activists in Fort Greene and Clinton Hill.
