"A Letter to My Nephew" in Context

October 15, 2018 | 7:00 PM

Chapman Foundations Recital Hall

Dr. Rosenna Bakari is an empowerment motivational speaker, a transformational spoken word artist, and an advocate for survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Her newly released memoir, Too Much Love Is Not Enough: A Memoir of Silence of Childhood Sexual Abuse, marks her fourth book. She has also written and produced a theatrical performance, Talking Trees, to give voice to the lingering trauma of silence. A 2018 recipient of the Women of Influence award, her work has not gone unnoticed and is much appreciated as she makes the invisible visible and give voice to the silenced on professional, artistic and academic platforms.

Bakari will be joined by Ent Center Director Aisha Ahmad-Post, Carlo Antonio Villanueva (Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company dancer), Nick Hallett (Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company composer), and Theatre & Dance Professor Kevin Landis. We will invite community conversation around these ideas and themes.
