Diaspora Monologues 2020 Vendors Form Come Shop: Fehinty Marketplace, Feb 21- Mar 8
The 2020 Diaspora Monologues, VA-NA-KU-LA, is exploring language and identity and will feature performance events that highlight language creativity across the African Diaspora -- Pidgin, Creole, Patois, African American vernacular and other language innovations that mark identity, community, resistance, solidarity, and creative agency.

Our Come Shop: Fehinty Marketplace has become a contextual feature of the Diaspora Monologues program. It is the space where the many branches of the African Diaspora meet, co-mingle, support, learn, and are enriched by one another. The Marketplace will receive its own promotion and open ahead of the performance programs for community shoppers.


Fridays: Dem Beats - Local DJs will host dances that journey through the music of the diaspora-- reggae, dancehall, afro-beat, afro-pop, hip hop and more. (8pm)

Saturdays: Fatty Bum Bum, a new play by Nikkita Duke, written in Nigerian pidgin is a social and cultural commentary on marginalization and self-preservation when Emediong, a young woman ridiculed because of her weight, is forced to stand up for herself when her usual bus conductor insists on charging her more than other riders. (8 pm)

Sundays: Word Dey! will present original stories, poetry, spoken word, and personal narratives of community members that reflect how language heritage, encounters, and experiences shape and influence our identity.
