Artist-curator Tsedaye Makonnen’s Black Women as/and the Living Archive completed its final scheduled virtual event this past weekend, but if you missed any of it, the programs (which included two performances by Autumn Knight and Jasmine Hearn, a reading by Ola Ronke, the creator of The Free Black Women’s Library, and a double screening of films by Alisha Wormsley and Lisa Harris) are now available to watch on Washington Project for the Arts’ website. (Note that the films will only be available through the end of June, so be sure to catch those ASAP.)

The project is “aimed at initiating a conversation about the modes in which Black women encode, preserve, and share memory through community” and is “organized around four themes: Space, Moving Image, Memory; Collective Memory; Pleasure Memory; and Mama Memory [& Care].”
