Mahogany Browne‘s original choreopoem uplifts the historically silenced voices of justice-involved women, and interrogates America’s unjust systems—with a spotlight on the expanding carceral states of parole and probation. Springing from 2018 PEN America Writing For Justice Fellow Priscilla Ocen‘s vision and framework, this original advocacy-oriented performance leverages Ocen’s interview research as primary source material to create a stirring call to action. The Los Angeles program will be moderated by Nikki Blak, and feature Yazmin Monet Watkins and Tamara Blue.
