Do you remember Ronald Reagan’s presidency? We don’t, we weren’t alive for it. But we do remember the false idolization and mysticism that came with the slight utterance of Jelly Beans.

With one of us being the daughter of a U.S. soldier and the other, whose mere existence is criminalized, we acknowledge that Reagan’s legacy has ramifications to this day. But it’s not all that bad, Reagan did bring us Crack! For the evening let’s live out our pipe dreams with cake, comedy, a good ole roast, false symbols and some crack..

Do you know what the Melanated Corner is? Yes? No? Maybe? Well to get a working definition, it's the space during an art opening where the POC gather. It can be in various locations in the venue, but most commonly is by the bathroom or the food. It's the space that is void of micro/macroaggressions. And where a POC doesn't have to defend not knowing the latest slang. Presented in comedy/karaoke formats, Chelsea A. Flowers' Musings from the Corner enables you to take a gander at conversational topics inside the Corner. Enjoy the voyeuristic gaze into otherness.

As a participant you will learn and enhance your twerk skills, as well as learn how to listen to your body's muscles and maximize the effects of your twerking. We will work on form, technique and learn different positions to enhance the muscles utilized during the twerkout.

Because of Ronald Reagan my eggs are worthless. Can’t sell ‘em, can’t donate them, can’t even benefit from reproducing. Oh the woes of having a physicality that is criminalized and predisposed to premature death. But there’s an upside: Crack! Thanks to Ronald Reagan I can live out my pipe dreams of my humanity being acknowledged. With the four ingredients of cocaine, rat poison, baking soda and water. Life’s a party when you ride the wave.
