Event Description: “Join us as we celebrate Black Artstory Month 2018 on Myrtle Avenue in February. We are proud to present the 6th Annual Black Artstory Month, 'SANKOFA: GO BACK AND GET IT,' February 1-28. The month-long event series and Artwalk named this year by artist Ramona Candy, speaks to the notion that sometimes the best way forward is by stopping to reflect in order to be informed, empowered and inspired by individuals, stories and lessons of the past. FREE events take place every Friday evening and include everything from visual art, to poetry readings, to storytelling and more. Featuring the work of 10 Brooklyn-based visual artists, Black Artstory takes place at 6 businesses along Myrtle Avenue and at a variety of venues including Ingersoll Community Center, Leisure Life NYC, Five Spot Soul Food, and Brooklyn Navy Yard’s BLDG 92. SANKOFA recognizes the arts’ ability to act as a medium and conduit to expose, question and inspire when other forms of communication or action fall short. Themes include: dialogue, genealogy, inheritance, ancestors, tradition, lineage, liberation, and power.
