Into A Black Beyond
ConTextos’ Into a Black Beyond is a facilitated digital writing circle for ALL Black Chicagoans, across all identities, which will explore topics relevant to this inflection point in history with an eye toward mutual growth and shared understanding. In this circle, we share a co-created space to write and reflect as we tell our truths and explore our growth and aspirations.

In Author’s Circles, we have traditionally gathered in person to draft, revise, edit and publish our memoirs. Through the writing process, we move from hurt to healing, exploring the past as we author a brighter future.

Together, we write to release our thoughts, emotions and to connect with our pasts, our futures, and one another.
