About Blue Magic
Blue Magic is both a talk and poetry reading that looks deeper into Black History, erasure, and why preserving our story is vital to creating our future.
This talk/reading will conclude with a Social Justice Forum Theater facilitated by Poet and all audience members are invited and encouraged to participate.
About the Social Justice Forum Theater
Have you ever been in an argument with someone and as soon as you walked away from the feud all of the sudden you had all the things you should’ve said right at your disposal but for some reason, you couldn’t think of them in the heat of the moment?
The French call that ‘the wit of the staircase’, Daniel Goleman would say that you were ‘emotionally hi-jacked’, and Agusto Boal, creator of the world renown Theater of the Oppressed forum theater created life-changing tools & practices that can and do turn the ‘spectators into protagonists’!
This workshop is for those that have to navigate communities where racism, politics, and social justice (or lack thereof) are inescapable.
