Event Description

M. NourbeSe Philip presents the first online global iteration of the annual durational reading of Zong!, her acclaimed book-length poem, from November 30, 2020 to December 9, 2020.The 10-day durational reading commemorates the massacre of some 150 enslaved Africans, which began on November 29, 1781 and continued for the following 10 days. In its eighth year of production, there will be prerecorded readings/collective performances of the text, interspersed by 3 live simultaneous collective readings.Zong! Global 2020 will take place within the current context of the worldwide uprising against anti-Black racism, sparked by the lynching of George Floyd on May 25th 2020, as well the 2015 United Nations declaration of the International Decade for People of African Descent. In remembering Black lives lost on board the slave ship Zong, as well as Black lives that continue to be unnecessarily lost or taken today, Zong! Global 2020 enacts an indispensable form of grief work.
