A barber shop conversation on how to reckon with our own kin, and how do we respond when the rapist is not ex-police officer Daniel Holtzclaw or White at all.
“But how many black men mobilized against rape within black communities? How many black men chose to, instead, shame black women into silence? How many black men tasked black women with hiding their own victimization from the eyes of society in order to protect the black men doing the victimizing?” - Ahmad Greene-Hayes

Michelle Nickens joins CONNECT and St. Mark’s Church In-The-Bowery for a performance of“Running Days are Done” - an engaging, thought provoking dramatic presentation based on collected interviews with women survivors of sexual abuse.

During the performance, playwright/actress Michelle Nickens brings to life the voices of disparate women who defy cookie-cutter notions of victimization – they are fully dimensional and fully human, telling the stories of their lives with courage, honesty, and even humor. As they share their stories, we begin to recognize ourselves in them, to think, to feel, to sort through, and even to celebrate.
