During regular sessions, Becca and Kenya will plan their ongoing work, discuss baked goods, draw up spreadsheets and highlighta few of their favorite things that will be featured at the party on January 8th.

"Live Unchained is a collaborative global arts project for black women across the African diaspora (that includes African American women as well as black women in South America, central America, the Caribbean, Europe and throughout the continent of Africa—and well, anywhere in the world). We showcase women’s audio, written and visual creative works. We feature their work in Live Unchained events such as art exhibits, film screenings performances and discussions. Our goal is to develop a collection of these astounding audio, written and visual creations in the form of a book with a DVD and CD insert.
