(BROOKLYN, N.Y.) Downtown Brooklyn Partnership is celebrating Women's History Month at Albee Square on Saturday with performances, art exhibitions, instructional classes and most importantly, a theme of empowerment.
The festivities, which run from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., will kick off with a self-defense class led by Malikah, a collective of trauma-informed women dedicated to the fight against gender and hate-based violence. The class starts at 12:15 p.m. and you can register here.
The celebration continues with performances by Brooklyn-based poet and rapper Nappy Nina at 1 p.m. and Legacy Women, an all-women’s traditional musical group rooted in Afro-Dominican and Afro-Puerto Rican traditions, at 2 p.m.
Some of the all-day events include an outdoor photo exhibition recognizing the work of women peace activists, sewing instructions offered by Black Girls Sew and dance therapy provided by Mujeres en Movimiento.
