Yolanda Wisher's Rent Party at the Rosenbach

The Rosenbach

2008-2010 Delancey Place, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 19103, United States

"Inspired by Jacqueline Woodson’s novel Another Brooklyn (the 2018 One Book, One Philadelphia selection), January’s rent party theme is Black Girl Magic and will include sets by Philadelphia Youth Poet Laureate Husnaa Hashim and visiting performance artist Gabrielle Civil. This evening’s readings and music will connect and celebrate black girl magic in art across centuries, from the poetry of Phillis Wheatley, whose life and work illustrates both the power and the pitfalls of her place role in society, to Jacqueline Woodson’s lyrical portrait of four friends coming of age in a transitional urban landscape, to the creative visions of local artists today."
