UnTour in Chief Seattle- March 24th-26th
Updated: 5 days ago
Broke, Black, Brown and Disabled Book UnTour
Poor, Homeless, Indigenous, Black/Brown peoples go on an "UnTour" to share curriculum, workshops, film, poetry, performance, and prayer to promote an innovative model to solving homelessness called Homefulness.
The Po Poets Project, a grassroots project of the houseless, poor and indigenous peoples led movement known as POOR Magazine, will be in Chief Seattle March 24th-26th.
All of the Po Poets, formerly houseless, Black, Brown revolutionary poets, will be reading from their books and promoting their publications. They will also be sharing the medicine of UnSElling Mama Earth and building poor and houseless peoples’ solutions to poverty and homelessness, what they call Homefulness. These land liberators, from all four corners of Mama Earth, will be offering readings and workshops from their newest books: How to Not Call the Po'Lice Ever and Poverty Scholarship: Poor People-Led Theory, Art, Words, and Tears Across Mama Earth.
Po Poets will also be leading a Stolen Land/Hoarded Resources UnTour: prayer, vision, dream teaching, sharing of Radical Redistribution, Community Reparations, and Homefulness with wealth-hoarders, inheritors of stolen Mama Earth, and/or protected/occupied wealth neighborhoods.
When Mama and Me Lived Outside, an award-winning short film by Peter Menchini, will be shown followed by a Q&A. The film is based on the children’s book of the same name written by tiny gray-garcia and focuses on one family’s journey through homelessness.
Po Poets will lead writing workshops with Real Change vendors and with residents of Nickelsville. They will also meet with the WHEEL Writing Group for local unhoused women.
