TOS EVENT- Writing Yourself Well: A Black and Brown Womxns Writing Workshop

Updated: Feb 26, 2021

The TOS team hosts its first writing workshop with Dr. Berlisha Morton, Black feminist and writer of the one act play Utterances, an Afrofuturistic ghost story. This workshop is for all Black and Brown womxn and gender nonconforming. This space is a healing space, where care and love are central, and where Black and Brown womxn can take a moment to rest, reflect, and build solidarities. This workshop is capped at 20 people, so register and share with friends.

Dr. Berlisha R. Morton is an intellectual activist, performance artist and afrofuturista who studies and performs Blackness. She received her doctorate from Louisiana State University and her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Southern University and A&M College, an Historically Black College and University (HBCU) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  Her scholarship has appeared in the Encyclopedia of African American Education, The Western Journal of Black Studies, the Journal of Curriculum Theorizing, the Gender and Education journal and in edited volumes on African American students’ college readiness and Black women’s educational philosophy. She wrote and produced a one act play, Utterances: An Afrofuturistic Ghost Story. Her scholarship and art are driven by a desire to acknowledge the intellectual and spiritual contributions of women like her grandmother and great-aunt – lifelong domestic workers who had little formal education— to literary and educational canons.
