SteLi Book Club
The year 2020 brought out a huge shift in the world. The issues that have gone unoticed for years had risen to the surface; things overlooked in our personal lives as well as in the realm of social justice. We as a community felt a pull and a need to address these issues and educate ourselves on the role systemic racism has played in the history and in the lives of African Americans, Indigenous People, and Immigrants of Color. Our intention is to hold ourselves accountable and encourage others to continue learning from, discussing and sharing these stories and experiences.
Since June 2020, we have held SteLi Book Club meetings, engaging in works with an anti-racism lens which facilitates critical thinking for other areas of life. We held weekly discussions on what we read as an effort to make an achievable change.
Session 1: "The New Jim Crow" by Michelle Alexander
Session 2: "Ten Arguments for Deleting your Social Media Accounts Right Now" by Jaron Lanier, which opened our awareness to the ways that racism embeds itself in the tech industry and the everyday applications we use.
SteLi Book Club is BACK!
We are reading "Funeral Diva" by Pamela Sneed.
Pamela Sneed is a New York-based poet, writer, performer, actor, and visual artist. As well as an activist and teacher. Funeral Diva, is a coming of age story/ a memoir in poetry and prose of what It was like growing up in New York City during the 1980’s. Funeral Diva captures the impact of AIDS on Black Queer life, highlights the bonds between the living, dying and the dead, and takes a critical lens to examine police brutality/violations to the rights of LGBTQ+. In this work, Pamela Sneed confronts today’s most pressing issues and reflects on the disproportionate impact that AIDS and COVID-19 has had on African American communities.
SteLi Dance has offered MORNING and EVENING Mindfulness Sessions on Instagram LIVE from Nov-Jan!
These sessions focus on stretching the body and relaxing the mind, and have a big emphasis on the breath.
The morning sessions are meant as a way to help start the day right.
The evening sessions are used to prepare the mind and body for sleep, and release the stresses of the day.
All sessions are saved on our IGTV for 24 hours.
