with La Vaughn Belle & Jeannette Ehlers
October 2, 2018 from 7.30 – 9 pm
Sorte Firkant | Blågårdsgade 29 | 2200 Copenhagen

On October 1, 1878: Queen Mary and the four queens of the Fireburn labour revolt took the Danish Colonial occupation in Virgin Islands by storm, to better the working and living conditions of the workers in the plantation system.
On March 31, 2018 La Vaughn Belle & Jeannette Ehlers erected the first monument to honour Queen Mary on the harbour front of Copenhagen and took the world by storm:
International media outlets from around the world covered the inauguration of this ground breaking public monument and tourists from around the world have flocked to Copenhagen to see it, rivalling The Little Mermaid, who sits just up the block from Queen Mary. But the future of Queen Mary is still uncertain. Come listen to the Artists talk about the project – and how the community can come together to support the future of “I AM QUEEN MARY”.

Free entrance but limited seats - first come first serve.

The Event is organised by Sorte Firkant
The event is part of the program “The Dancer, The Drum & The Serpent (Witchcraft, Cyborgs and forms of Resistance)” which is supported by the Danish Foundation and Nørrebro Lokaludvalg.
