We are delighted that Quentin Walcott, Co-Executive Director of CONNECT will be participating in “What Black Men Are Doing for Justice | Mother Tongue: Monologues for Truth Bearing Women, for Emerging Sons and Other Keepers of the Flame” on February 8!

Conceived by Farah Tanis, Co-founder and Executive Director of Black Women’s Blueprint, Mother Tongue: Monologues for Truth Bearing Women, Emerging Sons and Other Keepers of the Flame is a call for public deliberation! With beautiful imagery, evocative music and bold choreography, poets and actors dramatizing and performing community will speak of silences, allowances, sexual and racial dynamics that remain intensely controversial. Black men and boys will share center stage, ushering in a time for truth, a time for troubling the waters, and for claiming what’s overdue.
