Black Body Amnesia-Performance Reading & Book Launch

 

Blending poetry and memoir, conversation, and performance theory, Black Body Amnesia: Poems and Other Speech Acts (published by Wendy Subway, 2022) enlivens a personal archive of visual and verbal offerings written and organized by poet, performance artist, educator, and curator Jaamil Olawale Kosoko. Inspired by Audre Lorde’s concept of biomythography, Kosoko mixes personal history, biography, and mythology to tell a complex narrative rooted within a queer, Black, self-defined, and feminist imagination.

Attire: Fun, Festive, Colorful
Signature cocktails will be served.

Buy the book for 20% off at the event.

Presented as part of Carnegie Hall’s Afrofuturism – A Citywide Festival, February – March 2022.
