blues record/improvising peace: a journal of healing

This two-sided interactive journal process of healing is as double-edged and complicated as the pain that we transform into beauty. Ideal for you, a friend in need, community healing gatherings, support groups, therapy sessions etc. Email brokenbeautifulpress@gmail.com to find out how you can get pre-assembled blue copies with a donation to UBUNTU-a women of color and survivor led coalition committed to ending violence.

I May Not Get There With You

I Be Who I Be: Love Notes

I Be Who I Be is an interactive journal of self-affirming love notes created in collaboration with UBUNTU Arts. After a successful debut at the WD Hill center's Community Day on September 23rd, (see impulsiveacts.blogspot.com for the workshop agenda), our second printing for the Phoenix Fest black heritage festival and the Durham LGBTQ Pride Festival has also completley dissappeared. If you'd like to use this tool in your community email brokenbeautifulpress@gmail.com and we'll hook it up! Or better yet...write a love note to yourself and share it with all of us!

stick it to the man

Because we deserve to be wherever we are. This sticker is a message towards critical mass. Black girls taking over.

Because we can be cute while pointing out the constant violence of a racist, sexist, classist, homophobic, gender-normative world.

We are only at risk because this oppressive system thinks we're dangerous. So risk everything! Where you at?

Was this built with slave labor? Does this depend on sweatshop labor. Were these resources garnered during a colonial takeover? What isn't stolen?

the pressed for knowledge workshop!

So far I've helped community groups, academic conferences, anarchists of color, student leaders and random strangers brought together for all kinds of reasons create about a dozen brilliant sponataneous publications. This workshop agenda is designed to facilitate groups to create spontaneous publications in one hour! Email brokenbeautifulpress@gmail.com and I'll email you the full agenda. Ask about the other workshops in the "impulsive activism" series and check out impulsiveacts.blogspot.com for sample agendas.

the broken broadside

Proceeds from the broadside go to the International Black Youth Summit (www.blacksummit.org). Email brokenbeautifulpress@gmail.com and offer a donation and I'll get back at you soon!

found: an interactive love story

Found is a letter-based interactive story about brown girls in love. Send me an email and I'll send you the game. Then you can post your responses to the blog! Yes. I love you too.

need: poetry as activism

This is an interactive poetry publication inspired by Audre Lorde's resistance poem "Need: A Chorale for Black Woman Voices". Lorde wrote this poem after 12 black women were murdered within 4 months in Boston. Along with the publication you'll get a toolkit for a set of workshops that will empower you to create productive dialogue about important issues that your community is silent about.
