LP Rhymes: Black Poets & Scribes

The Liberation Series is a year-long effort to uplift Bed-Stuy’s thriving past and present in partnership with local stakeholders, organizations, and businesses in the neighborhood today.

By bringing historic places into conversation with today’s artists and community leaders, this series will continue to explore the central role of Bed-Stuy in shaping Black art, culture, and community in New York City. 

April’s events center Earth Day, Black Maternal Health Week, and National Poetry month its programming, and each event in the series embodies one of three themes: Make Art. Build Community. Create Change. 

Build Community | As a part of National Poetry Month, we’re gathering at the storefront to kick back with poets and artists in the LP network. The storefront will have a poetry station set up where participants can take a moment to read writings by Black women poets and collage them together or create their own poetry. Snacks and refreshments will be served. Content may not be suitable for all audiences, so we recommend guests ages 21+.
