Today I attended the second day of the Association of Caribbean Women Writers conference. There were several highlights, including watching Miriam Alves perform her poetry in her roda aesthetic. She was so dynamic and beautiful to watch/listen to.
Angie Cruz presented some interesting points on key elements of Caribbean aesthetics, influences and connections between works. A science teacher, Sandra Inniss, gave a beautiful presentation on everyday Caribbean women's oral history.
The conference is going through Saturday, but we'll be heading out to the Dominican Republic for the summer.
