We’re excited to support our dear friend Anne-Marie (Amani) and her play Why Black Women Whisper showing at the Harbourfront Centre during KUUMBA.

Why Black Women Whisper is a poetic, multi-genre piece performed in spoken word, combining storytelling and performance with a backdrop of African rhythm and drums. Composed by Anne-Marie Woods, the story confronts the impact of racism and the systemic barriers placed on the voices of Black women and the efforts instituted to silence them. How does that affect relationships, love, identity and belonging? The title is a metaphor that speaks to the pain of what Black women go through when they speak up and what happens when they can’t.

This event is pay what you can, the suggested contribution is $10.
