Keefe Campus Center, Theater (008)

A poetic, experimental rumination on Audre Lorde’s memoir The Cancer Journals read aloud and responded to by a chorus of people, including current and former breast cancer patients. The stories they share are candid, cathartic messages about what it means to be a Person of Color Living with illness in American society.
This event is free and open to the public.
Keefe 008 is located in the basement of Keefe Campus Center and is wheelchair-accessible. Volunteers will be present to guide visitors to the venue via elevator or stairs. Seating is auditorium-style; space will be cleared for wheelchairs.
