Pamela Sneed, with editor Amy Scholder, presents “Funeral Diva”
October 29 @ 6:00 pmFree
In this collection of personal essays and poetry, acclaimed poet and performer Pamela Sneed details her coming of age in New York City during the late 1980s. Funeral Diva captures the impact of AIDS on Black Queer life, and highlights the enduring bonds between the living, the dying, and the dead. Sneed’s poems not only converse with lovers past and present, but also with her literary forebears–like James Baldwin, Toni Morrison, Audre Lorde–whose aesthetic and thematic investments she renews for a contemporary American landscape.
