Bird & Beckett, Tue, April 24, 7pm – 9pm 653 Chenery Street in San Francisco's Glen Park

Shizue Seigel, Nellie Wong, Roji Oyama, Dena Rod, Jennifer Hasegawa. Eric Whittington writes, Timely and crucial work by "ordinary” people of color with ties to SF. Many are already important voices in the historic struggles of today. Editor Shizue Seigel initiated "Write Now SF” creative writing workshops three years ago to encourage people of color to write their truths. The result is an impressive legion of clear thinking, engaged people that are too often overlooked. Over the years, this city of so much promise has been coveted by the greedy, who cannot stifle our dreams and accomplishments because we who love the city keep renewing and reinventing ourselves and our communities. We are here, we are together, and we aren’t going away." (Image: Artist Nannette Y. Harris)
