Granru Clothing Launch Party!
With refreshments, readings, & clothing line reveal!
Come celebrate Juneteenth with a Greenlight party and the launch of new line of clothing from our friends at Granru: Wearable Words. Local designer Shayaa Jeffrey has created a limited edition line of shirts celebrating some of his favorite books and authors: Toni Morrison, Richard Wright, and Octavia Butler. The handmade shirts will be available for purchase beginning at this party, followed by readings of each of the celebrated authors featured on the shirts. Special guests include Soraya Palmer (The Human Origins of Beatrice Porter and Other Essential Ghosts) and Zakiya Dalila Harris (The Other Black Girl).
Refreshments will be provided by Happy Cork, a local Black-owned wine shop. Both Granru & Greenlight will be donating a portion of proceeds to both Black Girls Sew and The Free Black Women's Library. Please join us as we celebrate Juneteenth with this special event you won't want to miss!
