HEAR WORD! WOC SUPPORT CIRCLE
Join a conversation for women of color after seeing HEAR WORD!.
February 5, 6:30PM, Loeb Drama Center
February 12, 6:30PM, Dudley Square
Ifeoma Fafunwa, creative director and founder of iOpenEye and director of HEAR WORD!, invites the world to think critically about gender inequality, and she encourages us through her empowering and informative show to come together in conversation, refuse to accept the status quo, and take control of our own destinies. Host Destiny Polk, A.R.T.’s Community Programs Assistant and founder of art-activist platform Radical Black Girl, will create a space where women of color who see HEAR WORD! can gather to have deeper conversation about the issues brought up in the play, while also receiving support and accountability for moving towards change within our communities.
