This week, contributor Crystal Sparrow got to talk with Maisha Ongoza, one of the leaders of the Pan-African Sisterhood Health Initiative, an intergenerational coalition that has seamstresses educating and sharing skills with middle and high school students on creative menstrual hygiene solutions. "The need is high all over the world" and P.A.S.H.I. is helping fill that need right here at home and cross the pond in various countries in Africa.
The weekly roundup features a cool trio of exhibitions opening at ArtYard, a timely play from Theatre Exile, and family-friendly Día de los Muertos events happening in the area.
Stay safe, Philly!
