Where there is a woman there is magic. If there is a moon falling from her mouth, she is a woman who knows her magic, who can share or not share her powers. A woman with a moon falling from her mouth, roses between her legs and tiaras of Spanish moss, this woman is a consort of the spirits. - Ntozake Shange

Join us March 10th as we celebrate the women from across the diaspora who have shaken our world and left an everlasting imprint on our lives. We are opening the day with self-portraiture for kids by The Brown Crayon Project. Kleaver Cruz of The Black Joy Project will be here to host a listening session and community conversation around Black joy as a form of resistance. RSVP here. As always, the Family Fun Zone will be open with life-sized childhood games. Tours of the Historic Hunterfly Road Houses run on the hour beginning at 2pm!
