Black History Month JaZZ: Jam…Zpace Ztation – A Creative Writing Workshop

In this Black History Month virtual workshop, we will discuss the history of the DJ from radio to turntabling, and the history of sound and music, like hip-hop and jazz, in the Southeast Queens neighborhoods. During the workshop, we will listen to music from different local artists and participants will create their own DJ responses to the historical information, music and prompts. Register at

This program will be held on Zoom and will be led by Sherese Francis, an Alkymist of the I-Magination who expresses her(e)self through poetry, interdisciplinary arts, workshop facilitation, editing and literary curation. Her(e) work takes inspiration from her(e) Afro-Caribbean heritage (Barbados and Dominica), and studies in Afrofuturism and Black Speculative Arts, mythology and etymology.
