'The Blacker The Berry ...' "I grew up hearing that expression. And I know a lot of brown women in the United States have too," says Shá Cage, project curator. This powerful multidisciplinary performance and companion visual art exhibit at Intermedia Arts features performance and visual artwork by over 50 women of color.
"The phrase 'The Blacker the Berry...' creates a cultural focal point for us to explore existing social meanings of the metaphor's negative and positive inferences, cultural images and associations. "When women begin to share places of connectivity, they break through isolation to discover healing, nurturing, networking, and critical sharing." That is The Blacker The Berry.
Wednesday's event is presented by The department of Gender, Women, Sexuality Studies and African American Studies in partnership with SHE, a student group for women of color on campus. Women from the Blacker the Berry performance will presented a Pop Up Performance that will serve as a point of departure for the discussion around 'The Decolonized Brown Body.' The discussion will be interactive and facilitated. There will also be early event 'City Road Map' engagement around the role of arts & economy in Minneapolis.
The event is free and open to the public.
