Mahogany Browne’s choreopoem Quilted Steel, is a visual literary work that brings the critical voices of system-impacted Black women to the stage. The interviews conducted by Priscilla Ocen served as the touchstone for this literary quilting, with a focus on centering the lives and dreams of formerly incarcerated women as a short film featuring actresses Dominique Toney, Yazmin Monet Watkins & Jasmine Williams. This anti-carceral collaboration between writer Mahogany L. Browne and literary organization PEN America is a call to arms. This project, produced by PEN America Director of Prison and Justice Writing Caits Meissner, demands we interrogate the impact of mass incarceration and honor the human condition on the road toward abolition. The night will host a premiere of the film, followed by a panel moderated by PEN America Deputy Director Nicole Shawan Junior.
