Black Talk

Poetry, music, books & sexual diversity
Friday August 1, 8.00 PM.

This year Amsterdam Pride will experience it’s first black pride event that I'm organising: Black Talk with poetry perfromances by black artists from Europe. Dean Atta will be the special international guest on stage coming from London. Local artist Zulile will spit her powerful words, Collin Schorea will be entertaining with humor and tenderness and the young lady SpringIls will let you fall in love with her style!
With a small musical intermezzo by rapper Lewellyn.

So be there!

This is the painting Listen by the Surinamese born artist Frank Creton.
I looked at it and was touched. I see a simple but effective use of forms and colors. And of course my own imagination, fueled by my background as a African Caribbean man, who does enjoy the music, the beauty and the spirit of other black men.
