We’re calling all Street Art Lovers!!! Take part in the BROWN GIRLS NARRATIVES mural painting this Sat. October 5th, 8am-12noon, 1125 Hull Street, Richmond, VA 23224. This event is organized by Kristal Lyn Brown, a Weaver in our Narrative Change Collaborative.
The BROWN GIRLS NARRATIVES highlights the lived experiences of being a Black woman through conversations, discussion, and art. The purpose of the project is to give women a voice to express their experiences as a Black woman and how that experience is impacted by racism. Racism is a stressor that Black women have dealt with for 400 years and it has impacted the lives of Black women both mentally and physically. Although racism is intertwined in all facets of American culture, and the likelihood of that changing is slim to none, our goal is to provide healthy coping strategies for Black women. In addition, our goal is to bring the community together to have those hard conversations through visual art in order to start to heal, cope, and continue to grow. BROWN GIRLS NARRATIVES include painting a mural that reflects Brown Girls and their experiences, a paint and sip, a traveling discussion group, and a coffee table book.
