Don't miss out: Today only, March 30th, Brooklyn hosts a comedy night in honor of Women's History Month. This is stated in a press release from Brooklyn President Antonio Reynoso.

On March 30, from 18:00 pm to 20:00 pm, The Women Who Tell Our Stories will take place at Brooklyn Borough Hall (209 Joralemon St, Brooklyn, NY 11201).

Comedians Chanel Ali and Sarah Hennessy of the Brooklyn Comedy Collective will perform stand-up, followed by a micro-workshop on storytelling and creating places for women led by Brooklyn-based artist Kira Joy Williams of The Laundromat Project.

Kira's workshop focuses on the radical story of black female storytellers and craftswomen who did everything to preserve cultural memory and communicate across physical distances and generations.

Kira will first share her oral history and visual storytelling project Home is in the Stories. She will tell stories that women in Brooklyn told her. Guests will then be invited to participate in an interactive version of this project, share their stories and take portraits of each other.

At the end of the master class, participants, led by Kira, will create a collective story based on photographs.

“Storytelling is at the core of everything that makes us special: the traditions of our ancestors, the compassion of the community, and the rebellious imagination that drives local and global change,” said Brooklyn President Antonio Reynoso. “This month, we celebrate the women who carry our stories across borders and across time—whether it be spoken word and oral history, song and music, poetry and prose, and more. It is thanks to their creativity and perseverance that once whispered stories and people almost lost in time have taken the place in our cultural memory that they deserved from the very beginning. Brooklynites will definitely enjoy this night of laughter and fellowship."
