Plantains and Our Becoming

February 21 @ 3:00 pm

Eat plantains and revel in the poetry of Melania Luisa Marte. How do we learn to love ourselves, survive, and honor the ancestor?

In the book Plantains and Our Becoming, Marte, an Afro-Latina Dominicana from New York, writes to us in English and Spanish.

Through the exploration of themes like self-love, nationalism, displacement, generational trauma, and ancestral knowledge, this collection uproots stereotypes while creating a new joyous vision for Black identity and personhood.

Register at bit.ly/PlantainPoetry to join Lillian Marrero Library where artist Yannick Lowery is drawing on his culinary background to prepare both sweet and savory plantains. What does it mean for us to live our lives and eat our foods in the diaspora?
