Anticipating Oct 7 in Philly? Here’s a Taste of Grammy Award Winner Dionne Farris

21 08 2010

In less than two months, women/womyn of color will come together for Crossroads and Crosswinds: Connecting Across Race and Space. This, the 2nd Annual LGBTQ Womyn of Color Conference presented by Elements Organization, will feature workshops, a film screening, inter-generational brunch and other opportunities for honest conversations and relationship building.

If that wasn’t exciting enough, Grammy Award winner Dionne Farris will perform during the conference. I’m sure you are familiar with her work and artistry. The Archivists Society is honored to share a short film from her video album “Remember My Name – Vol. 1” (2007).

Here is her 1997 jam from the Love Jones soundtrack, “Hopeless”(written by Van Hunt).

Dionne Farris was a part of the “extended musical family” of Arrested Development and featured in a few of the group’s songs. Here’s my favorite, “Tennessee” (1992).

The Black LGBT Archivists Society is excited for this conference, its organizers and each attendee (and to Dionne Farris for blessing Philadelphia with her gift).
