TONIGHT 8/21/17 8:30-10pm Lake Merritt Columns, Oakland, CA
Calling all FreeFolk to conjure under tonight’s new moon. We meet at the water adorned in Black. 8:30pm Lake Merritt columns (Grand Ave & El Embarcadero, Oakland). Please bring bowls to catch abundance invoked. Bring candles, an offering for the altar if you like. Bring your people, the ones who are close. We gather in the depth of darkness, centering expansive (QTGNC) Blackness, reflecting our collective Brilliance. This is a circle of safety specifically for folks of the Afro-Indigenous Diaspora. A circle of Black radical dreaming & imagination.

A pilot for Afro-Indigenous Liberatory Practice, #DignityInProcess is a nationally touring artivist toolkit in response to the Black Lives Matter movement, drawing upon the practices that have sourced the resilience of our ancestors for generations. This multidisciplinary platform merges art activism, ancestral healing, and QTGNC intersectional identity evolution within the Afro-Indigenous Diaspora. Through Art Actions- site specific performance rituals merged with direct action organizing, we call in the power of the ring shout, storytelling, movement, call and response to help us remember our sacred origins. Forming Wisdom Councils of Mixed Race, African-Native American, and Creole elders, multi-generational conversations lay the foundation for embodied accountability to sustain a movement of Black Liberation. Returning to the power of the circle, we build Freedom Schools embracing community learning that centers radical Black Feminism. Afro-futures emerge as we collectively celebrate the dignity of expansive Black life!
