Herstory LIVE (BLM Brum Exhibition Launch)

20th October 2016 @ 19:00 - 23:00

”Until the lion has its own historian, tales of hunting will always be of the hunter”
– African Proverb
… So we’re gonna eat the hunter and digest our own histories.

A night of poetry, music and storytelling exploring the themes of historic stories of the under represented diaspora.

Explore history, herstory and our stories through art, conversation and all the vibes. Chakrajuice & Ital will be on sale.

This time, we’re launching the photography captured of the UK’s Black Lives Matter protests over the Summer. More information coming soon. Hosted by affiejam

Line up

Janel Antoneshia
Jamaican born singer/writer Janel Antoneshia has not conformed to one style of music, she has no consistent sound but instead has been hugely inspired by Gospel, soul, rhythm and blues. Her overall desire is to continue to create music that’s relevant to the growth of herself and others.
Her voice has been described as: “Hauntingly beautiful”.

Jordanne Renee
Jordanne Renee is a poet, blogger and singer . She is a self proclaimed self love advocate and aims to push messages of self care through her work. She explores identity and experiences as a queer 3rd generation black Brit.
Jordanne Renee is a furiously brummie poet . She is a multipotential lite , intersectional feminist, plantain enthusiast and avid tea drinker – sometimes this allows her to make things.
