FLOW/Bookies Chicago Reading Series - Sept 16, 2018 4:00 PM

Come out for the last and the best of the 2018 series! 

Harvesting Truth & Dispelling Fakery: Demystifying Myths of the Angry Black Woman 

A woman who speaks her mind and shares her truth is not an angry woman.  She is empowered. 

A woman who does not wait on the world to make things right for her is not aggressive.  She is assertive. 

A woman who tell the world she is good and bright and worthy is not arrogant.  She speaks her own truth, not waiting for someone else to tell her story as the hunter does for the lion. 

Come listen to the poetry, prose and rap of hip hop poet Dr. Tara Betts,  fiction and prose writer Tina Jenkins Bell, MC and rapper Lizzie G. and poet Parneshia Jones.  

Bring your women and men friends.  Get ready for something we don't often hear as these artists harvest the truth and dispel the rest. 

Free Admission - refreshments, door prizes
