How can we make sure that Black history in our neighborhood of Fort Greene is preserved? How can we shape Brooklyn's future in a way that is informed by what we've learned from its past?
This month, join the Intergenerational Community Arts Council and the Future Historical Society for 3 storytelling and history-collecting events created in collaboration with Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership's Some Words: Black Artstory Month.
Now in it's eighth year, Black Artstory Month elevates and celebrates this neighborhood's long-standing history as a haven for Black artistry. This year's title and programs have been inspired by Audre Lorde's poem Coal.
