Youth Author Series: Mahogany L. Browne

Join us for a reading with acclaimed spoken word poet, visionary, and activist Mahogany L. Browne who will present various stories from her many books. Her reading will be followed by a Q&A conversation. Much of what twenty-first century culture tells black girls is not pretty: Don’t wear this; don’t smile at that. Don’t have an opinion; don’t dream big. And most of all, don’t love yourself. In response to such destructive ideas, internationally recognized poet Mahogany Browne challenges the conditioning of society by crafting an anthem of strength and magic undeniable in its bloom for all beautiful Black girls.
