April 28 Damali Ayo

Damali Ayo asks questions and pushes buttons with her identity-based art: installation, performance, writing and speaking. After Brown, she was here, now she operates from LA's larger platform. Her newest book is Obamistan! Land without Racism; she reads from it tonight. It's a serious work of humor, an au courant entrée into discussion of things not quite right in politics and society. Think Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert, except better, in a more socially active way, real, did I say funny? She is also a gifted clothing designer with a progressive business model. Highly recommended, see her speak at Powell's Burnside 1005 W. Burnside 7:30PM Free
