Breaking up with Amerikkka
February 7, 2017 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Whether surprised by the results or not, the complete and utter shittiness of the 2016 presidential elections has made one thing clear: for many, if not most, of us, America is the worst boyfriend ever. We’re tired of explaining why something hurt us only to be told we’re imagining it. We’re tired of insufficient apologies that turn the blame back on us and tell us we’re too sensitive. We’re tired of hearing that America will change. When Donald Trump became president-elect, the time for second chances and waiting to see what happens officially ran out. It’s time to break up, America. It’s you, not us.
This split is difficult, even if it is necessary. It requires the support of the usual break up essentials, friends, wine, and Beyoncé. Join host Artemisa Clark for a night of doing in public what we all, by now, have done in private: singing our favorite songs about the pain of and triumph over loss at the top of our lungs.
