Postcards to the Future: A Protest in Place / LEGACY
July 6, 2020
Kore Press is closed for the month of July as we do every year. However, because of the intensity of activist movements for the freedom and safety of Black people occurring into the summer, we didn’t want our website and other public displays to be dormant.
We are offering a thematic presentation/installation of work from our anthology Letters to the Future: Black Women/Radical Writing, (edited by Erica Hunt and Dawn Lundy Martin, 2018) starting in July, as a form of protest in place. Kore Press has been committed to publishing Black writers since its inception, and the Letters to the Future anthology compiles innovative, radical Black women whose work is both timeless and speaking to this historical moment.
Across each month we’ll present work in various media (print-based text, audio clips, and visual art) based on themes that are reflected in the diverse array of work in the book and that we feel are on the pulse of today’s social movement.
Our first theme is Legacy, which lays the ground for the arc of the series, followed by Horror, Activism, Joy, and Future.
We hope this series of multimedia displays/compilations —Postcards to the Future—running July through November, will give solace, energy, strength and a frame of reference for the activism and assertion of human rights for African-Americans and for us all.
