If the woman is a drum...for Jayne

In honor of internationally acclaimed poet and performer Jayne Cortez (1934-2012), Jadele McPherson, t'ai freedom ford and electronic musician Val Jeanty will read and perform original works as well as a selection of poems by Cortez. Invoking improvisation, politics, the spoken word, New York City and music, this event will be both a celebration as well as an reflection of Cortez's influence upon a younger generation of women artists.
