The CoOp

CO-OP_logo_comp2.png

In this amazing, but often hectic, melting pot we call our city, we often don't understand the folks we live next to, breathe the same air with and dodge street debris with. The Co-op is a night of true stories shared by our fellow neighbors—placing face to name to narrative. As we begin to make this city of strangers more communal, perhaps you'll share your story and join the collective.

And with every CoOp event, all ticket proceeds will go to a nonprofit in a different neighborhood of our city. This night's recipient will be I, Too Arts Collective—a non-profit organization committed to nurturing voices from underrepresented communities in the creative arts (itooarts.com).

We welcome you to spend an evening in Harlem, enjoy a drink (beer & wine provided by a generous anonymous donor) and listen to some good stories.

A Book Launch Event: DiVida by Monica Hand

Published posthumously, this powerful second collection is a raw dialogue about being black in today's society, exploring injustices survived by using a dream-like consciousness to take on multiple personas: DiVida, who wants to assimilate into the larger culture, and Sapphire, who refuses to follow at the expense of her self-actualization.
