Thursday, March 12, 6–9pm
SOMArts, 934 Brannan St.

Curated by Alie Jones and Toshia Christal, Unbound Roots challenges the self-care industry by expanding discussions around Black wellness practices rooted in mental, spirituality and community care. Unbound Roots transcend through acceptance, pleasure, and liberation providing a safe space that encourages individual awareness, generational healing, and high vibratory engagements.

The free, all ages opening reception titled Acceptance centers the healing of the African diasporic community on Thursday, March 12, 6–9pm. The special evening program features curatorial remarks, music by DJ Black, an interactive art walk, blessings by Bushmama Africa, and community cypher facilitated by Najee Amanranth where guests are invited to get on the mic and share a poem, a song, thought, or response to the exhibition. Guests are encouraged to wear green, signifying love, growth, renewal, compassion, balance and harmony.
