Beloved Community! This week marks what would have been the 53rd birthday of Black Gay Poet, Activist, Publisher, Lover, Friend, Comrade, Prophet Essex Hemphill. Please join us to remember Essex Hemphill, reflect on his poetry, watch a video of him speaking about the role of the writer in the age of AIDS and center our spirits on what the legacy of Essex Hemphill means for our lives today.
Meet us at the Inspiration Station at 2:30 pm on Sunday April 18th (two days after Hemphill’s actual birthday). Children are welcome.
