Help Raise Funds To Restore The Afrikan Poetry Theatre

Organized as part of the inaugural Southeast Queens Biennial: A Locus of Moving Points, Prologue honors the history of Southeast Queens and holds space for the future of the region’s literary community.

 Poets Amber Atiya, Desiree C. Bailey, Sherese Francis and Bob McNeil will read work engaging with Black diaspora and ancestry, intersectionality, and the personal and collective histories coming out of Southeast Queens.

Artist Damali Abrams the Glitter Priestess will perform a tea ritual for healing at intermission. The program is presented by the 2017 No Longer Empty Curatorial Lab (NLE Lab) in partnership with J. Expressions, a Southeast Queens Pop Up bookshop and mobile library project founded by Sherese Francis.

Prologue is dedicated to the Afrikan Poetry Theater in Jamaica, Queens, which recently suffered a devastating fire.
