The Speaking of Travel + Gulf Coast Love Story series with Dayna Reggero of the Climate Listening Project is a platform to keep you informed on what’s happening in one of the most beautiful and vulnerable areas, The Gulf Coast.
Joining Dayna is Ebony Stewart, an elite performer, brilliant lyricist and award-winning playwright. Her newest collection, Bloodfresh, blends her understanding of craft with her keen ear for orality.
Ebony stars in Dayna's Climate Listening Project film project: Gulf Coast Love Story, where she is listening to artists and activists working together in the Gulf Coast.
Bloodfresh is a celebration of identity and Ebony reclaims her own narrative to speak against the racism and colorism she's experienced, while criticizing society's treatment of women as sexual objects. This collection is an open letter to acknowledge, overcome, and learn new ways to use poetry as a coping technique.
Cheers to Dayna and Ebony and all the people on the Gulf Coast for sharing their stories.
