I’m excited about “Word*Rock*&Sword,” an upcoming series organized by singer-songwriter-guitarist Toshi Reagon. It’s billed as a “festival exploration of women’s lives.” The festival includes issue-driven panel discussions, like a talk with formerly incarcerated women, belly dance classes and on Sept. 24, there will be a musical celebration at Le Poisson Rouge. The week of events culminates with a tarot card reading with a chef/healer. Toshi is an incredible artist who always fuses activism and art so I’m excited to see her work.
