Femme: Literati Mixtape

So, yeah!  With all the unseen words

floating around in clouds

and free spaces

and unwired four walls

real paper, pages, ink has become somewhat obsolete

and needed a Native Queen to bring them back to life.

And HERstory was made!  ‘cause isn’t this how it’s always made?  

Look around.  It’s happening!

Femme: Literati Mixtape is an anthology due Summer 2019 conceived by Genre: Urban Arts.  Anthologies are everything!  Literally…everything!  Creative Director, Nakeysha Roberts Washington (@nakeysha) together with authors/editors Rico Lowe (@panafrico) and Shimah Easter (@gonbeallwrite_mah) are preparing to present this opportunity to women creatives who are of the African diaspora together with their brown sistren, contemporary, informed and passionate.  The anthology will feature a mix of written word, art, photography and fashion.
