Black Ladies Brunch Collective
The Black Ladies Brunch Collective's Poetry Anthology, “Not Without Our Laughter,” is a collection of humorous and joyful poems, riffing on Langston Hughes’s novel “Not Without Laughter.” It explores topics of family, work, love and sexuality. The women of BLBC believe, like Hughes, that even in these currently tense racial times, laughter and the celebration of life is crucial. Historically, it is what African Americans have done and will continue to do, no matter what challenges face them.
The Black Ladies Brunch Collective is (clockwise from top-left): Teri Cross Davis, Anya Creightney, Katy Richey, celeste doaks, Saida Agostini, and Tafisha Edwards.
