“Anika’s performance inspired me to be in touch with my own emotions and thoughts as a black woman. I am grateful for the honesty, grace, and power in each piece. It truly was a gift to experience.”–Elizabeth L.
Anika will be offering a private workshop for the Reading Public Library staff next Friday, November 6, 2020. With support from co-facilitator, Deb Gilburg, the workshop will use Anika’s book, Every Day in the USA: 30 Black Moments to help participants identify their racial blind spots, so they can interrupt the daily microaggressions that they and their co-workers may be perpetuating and witnessing in both their workplace and personal environments.
(This continues Anika’s ongoing outreach to librarians throughout Massachusetts and beyond to understand how Every Day in the USA: 30 Black Moments can be used as a tool to help dismantle white supremacy culture in our nation. If you are a librarian or know one who might be interested in learning more, please use the Contact Form to get in touch with Anika.)
