“Live Through This: Surviving the Intersections of Sexuality, God and Race” @ Rutgers University - Newark Dana Room, 4th Floor, John Cotton Dana Library
Oct 19 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Clay Cane’s collection of personal essays is a cathartic journey on the nuances of race, class, gender, sexuality, and faith. With honesty and humor, Cane candidly reflects on the heartbreaking, inspirational and unforgettable moments in his life. The narrative explores his diverse racial identity, searching for his “tribe” as a black gay man, growing up in Philadelphia and Washington State during the 1980s and 1990s, and eventually moving to New York City. Combined with the influence of pop culture, these factors influenced and shaped his identity within the intersectional space of the black and LGBT communities. In addition, Live Through This is a direct response to Trump-era politics. Through the art of storytelling, the communities most disenfranchised are represented in the book: undocumented workers, transgender women of color, queer people, single mothers, poor whites and how these various identities intersect. Under our current political climate, marginalized communities are most at risk. Live Through This delivers an emotional narrative that needs to be heard, respected and understood, now, more than ever.

Hair’itage The Play uniquely tells the evolution of the Black woman’s hair. Six “sistahs”- with different styles and grades of hair share how their hair has defined them, their love lives, self-image, and careers. Funny, deep, inspiring, and sometimes sexy, Hair’itage opens a deeper conversation around Black femininity, social perceptions, and how hair impacts the lives of Black women.
Each sistah shares their love-hate relationship with their hair; telling secret wishes and fears, jealousy and adoration, and the acceptance or rejection from their lovers, mothers, bosses, friends, and self.

More than the popular “love your hair. love yourself” speech, HAIR’itage the Play is a captivating experience that reveals how a woman defines herself by the hair style she chooses. Long, straight, bald, colored, or natural – women of all hair types will be impacted by this unforgettable play.
Playgoers leave in awe – empowered. Some even share tears of joy, as they can relate to the storyline from a personal perspective. Hair’itage is a journey that women, and men, from all walks of life, socio-economic backgrounds, and cultural backgrounds will enjoy.
As quoted by the NY Amsterdam News “Throughout the play, the six sistahs engage in a much-needed dialogue about hair and how it is intertwined with race relations, love, and respect in the Black community……Gaines’ impeccable writing and the talent of the actresses more than exceeded expectations…”
Join the sistahs on their journey of discovery, balance, and beauty. Gain insights into what YOUR hair means to you, your life choices and beliefs, and happiness.
And of course we have to do things in NJCURLFRIENDS fashion with a pop up shop featuring awesome vendors , Giveaways and more.

*It is a daily struggle for many to survive in third world countries. It is a daily struggle to earn $25 usd. Upon recently visiting a KFC restaurant in Accra Ghana, I asked a worker dressed nicely in his KFC uniform how much did he earn? He said 385 ghc monthly which is $88.74 usd for the whole month. I then asked how many hours did he work each week? He said 5 days a week, 2 days off with 40 plus hours. There is no such thing as being paid for overtime. I sat and cried in dismay. I was then told by a mall manager after complaining that if the worker complained for more wages they will be fired by the owner of the establishment and they would just hire someone else. Please help better someone else’s life by sponsoring them to come participate in our event to help better their livelihood. Please scroll down to sponsorship.
