Join us for a staged reading of “The (Sexual) Liberation of Mammy”, a play by j.D. Stokely. The play is about Adanne, a young Black lesbian whose life is turned upside-down after the Mammy statue her mother gives her comes to life. The play aims to have honest conversations about race, gender & sexuality, while also confronting the ugly history of Black tropes/memorabilia in American history. The staged reading will be followed by a dinner & facilitated talkback with the playwright.
