‘THE REVIVAL: WOMEN AND THE WORD chronicles the US tour of a group of Black lesbian poets and musicians, who become present-day stewards of a historical movement to build community among queer women of colour while upholding literary arts excellence’.
Alongside the film screening Our Mel will introduce performances by spoken word artist and author Dylema, and poet and performer Ella Otomewo. There’ll be a sweet treat and cake stall, including delicious vegan chocolate goodies from Truffle Pig Vegan and a cash bar.
