About the event

MOTHER BODY is an intersectional exploration of the trauma and agency held within a body defined by its potential to mother. As MOTHER BODY unfolds, it tasks its reader to understand the expected and unexpected manifestations of motherhood, through menstruation and womb work, but also generational, societal, and literary mothering. With a variety of forms and modes, these poems unpack the experiences of a fat, black woman's body while also manifesting joy, resistance, and celebration. ••• This conversation is a part of DBLAC's Spring 2022 Reading Series and is supported by the University of Pittsburgh's Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Education's Center for Urban Education
