We’re back with our second episode of 2018, featuring a fantastic conversation with Burque Noir founder Ebony Isis Booth! Peri and Eph Sharpe chat with Ebony about how she created a showcase for Black performers in Albuquerque, and how she balances the many different identities — poet, organizer, marketing pro, auntie-mom, holder of the mic — that make her who she is.
Burque Noir happens next week! There are two main events: On Feb. 15, Making Africa | Burque Noir is happening at the Albuquerque Museum. On Feb. 25, High Tea on the Bosque is happening at the Bachechi Open Space. #BeRealBlackForMe
