    Hosted by Black Girl Magik and Playground Coffee Shop, The Crossover Series intends to take a finer look at the issues that our community battles with, carrying out a open forum discussion to dissolve tension and attempt solutions in the neighborhood.

    The first installment of this series is focused primarily on Mother Earth, promoting Eco-Solutions to our everyday problems. This event is set to explore issues ranging from Food Deserts, Gentrification, Community Outreach and Development and Sustainable methods that can be taken from the workshop into your home.

    By providing an accessible space to gather we aim to create transparent solutions and revolutionary rhetoric to bridge the gap between environment and community.

    Join us! We welcome you at the door with a minimum of $7. All donations, love + light accepted.

    Transcending Time

    “Transcending Time” is a voyage into a future where Black identity is unfettered by a predetermined architecture. It is a visualization exercise exploring the texture, pattern, sound and rhythm of Black possibility. Who do we become when healing from trauma is decentralized? We are creating a ceremony of self-authorization. We are giving ourselves permission to reimagine what was, what is and what can be.

    Reclaiming Pleasure

    "Reclaiming Pleasure" is the assertion of sexual power, alongside a period of recovery. It is a Black woman finding strength in her sensuality and grounding autonomy in the realms of pleasure and desire. It is the rejection of standards set on our ancestors and the distinction between agency and objectification.

    Returning Home

    “Returning Home” is an exploration back to lands, rituals and traditions that we have always known. It is voyaging and feeling at home as soon as you step foot on the ground. It is hearing music and your soul perceiving the frequencies. It is seeing a familiar face and knowing that somehow you have met before. “Returning Home” is a return to self.
