Searching for Shared Truths: the making of a play
Amoke Kubat received a 2015 Minnesota State Arts Board Cultural Community Partnership Grant to write and perform her first nontraditional play “Angry Black Woman” and “Well Intentioned White Girl.”
Watch this space and the Minnesota Women’s Press for the dates for this production, slated for October 2015 at Intermedia Arts. This innovative presentation will address issues that create and maintain the barriers for black and white women to be natural allies, as mothers, healers, artists, community organizers, especially in these times of wars against women.
She is an emerging artist, blogger (blogher-amokekubat), retired special education teacher, founder of YO MAMA: The Mothering Mothers Institute and author of “Missing Mama: My Story of Loss, Sorrow and Healing.” She lives in Minneapolis.
Missing Mama: My Story of Loss, Sorrow and Healing is available at The Art Shoppe at Midtown Global Market.
