The State of Black Bodies
Uni Q. Mical performs a series of poems and monologues: "7 Generations Forward, 7 Generations Back", "Why Can't You Just Dress Like Her?", and "Confessions of a Punk". These performances are excerpts from a poetic stage production, The State of Black Bodies (directed by Mona Webb & Dazie Grego). Unique co-wrote the manuscript for The State of Black Bodies as a part of Pr3ssPlayPoets (a 4-part Black Women's Poetry Collective formed at Mills College) from 2015-2018.
The State of Black Bodies was featured as part of the 2018 National Queer Arts Festival, organized by San Francisco's Queer Cultural Center. This footage was filmed June 2, 2018 at Eastside Arts Alliance, Oakland, California.
