Thursday marks the launch of Rehumanize Me, an anthology of essays and poems written by Black youth in Minneapolis. Published by Minneapolis’s own Wise Ink in partnership with their cultural reparations program Project Exodus and 826 MSPs, the anthology gave Black students the space to own their narrative during a time of uprising. The collection covers a range of subjects including the joy of a bike ride to rising up following adversity. In the forward, the student editorial board states, “Rehumanize Me doesn’t just capture the Black experience in the way society and media depicts it. We dance and paint and take care of plants and make movies too. We love.” Come celebrate the launch at Pimento Jamaican Kitchen where there’ll be readings by the contributing writers and a DJ set by Michel.Be. THURS. 5 – 7 PM.
