Join us for a night with Prisca, who is an inspiration and an important figure that brings light into the current dark and confusing political climate that we are living in today. Based on her latest work, “Dear Woke Brown Girl”, we will dive into her personal narrative, what it means to exist and resist, and what it means to be a woke brown girl while also being able to discuss our own personal struggles in this current time.
Hope to see ya’ll there!
