Tactical Timelines: Historical Futurisms 

When: Thu., July 30, 8-10 p.m. 2015
Price: $5, $10
In May, a group of Black women shed their shirts and blocked the streets of San Francisco’s financial district in an inspiring action that they called “#sayhername.” The demonstration reclaimed the African tradition of bare-chested protest to call for the end of state violence against Black women and girls. Now, Omi Gallery inside of Oakland Impact Hub (2323 Broadway, Oakland), is hosting a show entitled Who Taught You How to Love Yourself? Black Women!, which features multimedia by April Martin and photographs by Oree Original that highlight the historical moment. In conjunction with the exhibition, on July 30, Omi is hosting a screening of Martin’s 2014 documentary Cincinnati Goddamn, which focuses on anti-police-brutality organizing in Cincinnati, Ohio — telling the stories of the deaths of Roger Owensby, Jr. (2000) and Timothy Thomas (2001). After the screening, there will be a Q&A with Martin, as well as a panel with Martin, Ashara Ekundayo, and #BlackLivesMatter organizers Cat Brooks and Ashley Yates. Come early, because the night will begin with a performance by The Black Sheroes of the Oakland-based youth performance collective Young, Gifted and Black.
