Blk Grrrl Book Fair

Cielo Galleries/Studios

Inaugural Blk Grrrl Book Fair Saturday, March 7.

LOS ANGELES, December 1, 2014 /BRICKBATPR/ --The inaugural Blk Grrrl Book Fair will be held on Saturday, March 7 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Cielo Galleries/Studios located at 3201 Maple Street in South Central Los Angeles 90011.

Blk Grrrl Books Fair is a book fair, an art show, literary reading series and short film festival with a focus on politically active feminists.

Blk stands for politically active person of African descent.
Grrrl is from the third wave feminist Riot Grrrl movement.

The Blk Grrrl Book Fair idea was sparked from the “MPC presents the Blk Grrrl Show!” an underground vlog on the visual and literary arts in Los Angeles which is hosted and produced by Teka-Lark Fleming .

The co-coordinator is Skira Martinez gallerist, artist and owner of Cielo Galleries/Studios.
“The event is inclusive of everyone. Skira and I wanted to have a true inclusive literary event that includes everyone, because most literary events aren’t typically very inclusive of Black and Latino people outside of the spoken word venue. We write fiction and nonfiction too. We also publish,” said founder and coordinator, Teka-Lark Fleming.

The film festival will be curated by Zoe Blaq of Piddle Productions.

There will also be a special live studio audience “MPC presents the Blk Grrrl Show!” panel on the topic of the three Eastsides -- the Black Eastside, the Latino Eastside and the white Eastside at 3 p.m.
