Ujima Company & Pure Ink  present:

Spoken - In Her Own Words 

This two- part program follows two incredible live SPOKEN shows performed outside in the Meadow at Silo City this past summer. In Her Own Words highlights the voices of women within Buffalo’s  literary and spoken word community, connecting us through uncensored human experiences by means of poetry, music and theatre.  Artists performing - Jillian Hanesworth, Annette Daniels- Taylor, Melinda Capeles, Danielle AJ, Eve Williams and Ujima Company Member, vonetta t. rhodes. This program is presented in partnership with Pure Ink Poetry.



This 6-part series is a continuation of Ujima’s revolving online showcase of invited artists reflecting their views, opinions and creations addressing today’s current events, issues and concerns. The series was created by Ujima company members during the pandemic as a way for artists to come together as a community to heal and to help others heal. #ArtThatHeals features artists from all disciplines, providing short balms of healing through song, dance, art installations, portraits, poetry, film and more.
