Drawing primarily on Gloria Naylor’s Mama Day and Bailey’s Cafe, this intensive activates land memory and time travel as crucial resources for contemporary Black life and operationalizes Naylor’s magical realist, speculative historical work as a basis to inquire about how we remember, how we time travel, we we become unwound and how to get unbound. Participants do not have to have already read Mama Day and Bailey’s Cafe (though you will definitely want to once we are done!). Come to this intensive ready to interrogate your own boundaries, remember the storms that precede you and clear out the back alleys of your spirit. This intensive is open to all people.
