Eintou Springer will be the esteemed guest of the New York based Medgar Evers College during Women's History month in March of this year, as she shares her wide experience and knowledge of poetry, theatre and literature with the students there.
Springer will conduct workshops with the Drama Club and the Women's Studies group, as well as share her poetry and knowledge of poetic techniques. Manager and daughter Dara Healy will accompany her on the visit, and will share her own talents as an actress and performer. The two will showcase the work that Idakeda has been doing in schools and communities using traditional carnival characters of Trinidad and Tobago.
Eintou will also attend the 21st Anniversary Celebration and Brunch of the International Cross-Cultural Black Women's Studies Institute, of which she is a member.
We extend warm thanks to Professor Andree Mc Laughlin, the founding International Coordinator of this Institute and holder of the Dr. Betty Shabazz Distinguished Chair in Social Justice at Medgar Evers, for her kind invitation to be a part of these important celebrations and her continued sisterly love and support.
