This First Saturday (June 6) was organized to celebrate Pride, which started as an uprising, led by trans people of color, against police brutality. In this spirit, and after speaking with our participating artists and staff, we are pausing our regularly scheduled First Saturday to stand in solidarity with the fight against anti-Blackness and police brutality. For more than twenty-one years, First Saturdays have been a site for Black joy, community, and culture. Below are suggestions to honor the space that our collective grief requires, and the focus that this moment of protest asks of us.
Participate in Desire: A Sankofa Dream, a new work by MBDance Director Maria Bauman-Morales that explores imagination as a mechanism of Black queer survival. This program was originally planned to be presented for June First Saturday. RSVP.
Support Black-owned businesses in the neighborhood, such as @Bottomsupwinesonfranklin, which is our go-to for stocking First Saturday greenrooms. Follow @blackownedBklyn for more.
