Join the Matatu Festival on Thursday, April 27 for one evening with activist, former political prisoner, and poet Ericka Huggins as she reaches into her own history, reading the words of sheroes and heroes that span the last 50 years of her life. Inspired by the Civil Rights Movement, she made a commitment to the Human Rights Movement and is a witness to movements across formations today.

Ericka is introduced by writers Chinaka Hodge and Zoé Samudzi, both sharing their thoughts and works in criticism of the moment. The entire evening features open dialogue with audience members.
