‘I Been Tellin Tales I Almost Understand’ is a space for writers who would write all day if they could. But it’s also a space for writers who do not yet know that they are writers, but have their suspicions and curiosities. Participants will be writing, exchanging, performing and learning from one another. The Black community encourages, nurtures and holds space for diverse Black perspectives and experiences.
This event is open to all people of Black African descent and is a safe space for Black women, Black people who are disability identified, Black people who chart their identities along LGBTQIA PLUS spectrums, Black people in administrative irregularity, Black people who identify as working class, and Black people who practice African Traditional Religions and / or Afro-Diasporic Religions.
