Well-Read Black Girl Festival Kickoff with Glory Edim and Staceyann Chin

October 25, 2019

Well-Read Black Girl welcomes world-renowned LGBTQ poet and spoken-word artist Staceyann Chin to the 3rd annual #WRBGFest kick-off party. Together we’ll celebrate Chin’s first full-length poetry collection. Crossfire collects Staceyann Chin’s empowering, feminist-LGBTQ-Caribbean, activist-driven poetry for the first time in a single book. According to the New York Times, Chin is “sassy, rageful and sometimes softly self-mocking.” The Advocate says that her poems, “combine hilarious one-liners with a refusal to conform” and notes “Chin is out to confront more than just the straight world.”
