Everyone’s favorite multi-hyphenate, Tavi Gevinson, will be appearing at the Brooklyn Museum this Saturday, where she will be in conversation with writer-editor Anna Holmes as part of the museum’s First Saturday programming. This month’s theme is “Women Changemakers” and the day’s free events will include music from Alissia & The Funketeers; a viewing of the film LaDonna Harris: Indian 101, directed by Julianna Brannum, and centering around the life of Harris, a Comanche activist; music from Princess Nokia, singer and voice behind the Smart Girl Club radio show; a workshop with the performance collective Colored Girls Hustle; and “a range of healing activities, including herbalism, tarot readings, acupressure, and partner stretch, among others… led by Harriet’s Apothecary, a collective of black healers continuing the legacy of abolitionist, community nurse, and herbalist Harriet Tubman.” And, also, there’s much, much more!

We’re big fans of the Brooklyn Museum in general, and the First Saturday programming specifically, but even with our high expectations, we are pretty blown away by the start-to-finish awesomeness of this line up. So head over to the Brooklyn Museum this Saturday, because, you just know the lines at that other women-centered museum exhibition are going to be endless. And very possibly not worth your wait.
