We work to manifest event spaces, products, and campaigns that empower oppressed communities to take their political & cultural organizing goals from dream to reality. In our wake, Freedom Dreams for Black Trans folks, Black Women, and as a result, all bodies, should be tangibly more within reach.
Real American Book Tour
In Julie Lythcott-Haims Memoir, Real American, we see first-hand how “so-called microaggressions, in addition to blunt force insults can puncture a person’s inner life with a thousand tiny cuts.” On her national book tour, Music Freedom Dreams helped to elevate Lythcott-Haims’s story and other examples of resilience to these cuts by partnering with local poets throughout the country, aged 12-25. Using original works, these local poets opened for each event with original works to help contemporize and forefront the Black struggle as it still lives in bodies today. Audiences walked away changed by both writers, and reminded that Blackness is just as worthy of seeing, loving and fighting here in 2018, as it has always been.
