Monday, November 5th– 6:30pm doors; 7pm start
SAYERS & DOERS, the cultural Talk Series kicks off its second season, featuring Harlem, national and international experts – authors, artists, academics, adventurers, comics, musicians, journalists, chefs, bartenders and designers – sharing their passion projects – for an evening of inspiration, learning and conviviality. Featuring:
Alexis Clark:A journalist and author, Clark’s debut, “ENEMIES IN LOVE,” uncovers a remarkable story of a German POW, a black nurse, and an unlikely romance that took place twenty years before Loving v. Virginia would legalize interracial marriage. She is an adjunct professor at Columbia Journalism School and contributor to The New York Times, The History Channel, and Smithsonian Magazine, among others.
Keith Gessen: Acclaimed novelist, journalist and literary translator, Gessen’s latest work, “A Terrible Country,” is “hilarious,” “heartbreaking” and draws upon his Russian roots. A founding editor of literary magazine, n+1, he is also an assistant professor at Columbia University.
Darnell Moore: One of the most influential black writers and thinkers of our time, Moore’s new memoir, “No Ashes in the Fire,”is an inspiring story of beauty and hope – and an honest reckoning with family, with place, and with what it means to be free.
Jenny Raymond:Why is it that between the ages of 8 and 14, girls’ confidence levels fall by 30%, and why does this matter to ALLof us? This is a topic that Harlem resident Raymond has thought a lot about, and, as the creator of Funny Girls, is DOING something about by applying the principles of improv and five leadership skills to help bridge the gap.
“Y’all should follow @sayersdoers! They do really dope programming.”
