"The Other Black Woman" Panel Discussion

  • Baltimore Inner Harbor Light Street Baltimore, MD United States (map)

This discussion will explore the idea of "the other black woman," and how the panelists have created their work from, and for, this space. The panel will present a discussion that speaks to women of color who identify with their own "otherness" (including subculture fans, queer identified, etc.) and are interested in discussing personal experiences and best practices for creating work as black women who exist beyond the stereotypes within the black community. Topics will touch on the creative process, access, the need for spaces that speak directly to black women, and making our own lanes as independent artists. With Nia Johnson (LesB Inn), Andrea Boston (Oddflower), and Melissa Moore (Y-LLEAD).

Presented by Red Emma's Radical Bookfair Pavilion at the Baltimore Book Festival 2015.
