Trinidadian-born, Queens-raised poet Cheryl Boyce-Taylor is the mother of the late Phife Dawg (1970-2016), founding member of the multi-platinum hip-hop group, A Tribe Called Quest. Boyce-Taylor’s new book, Mama Phife Represents, is a mother’s grief diary filled with poems, remembrances, and snapshots of Phife’s life as a child into adulthood —in their collective words. 

Join us for a brilliant reading and heartfelt discussion about motherhood, grieving and rejuvenation with Boyce-Taylor and her friend, Steven G Fullwood, writer, archivist and publisher of her 2005 book, Convincing the Body (2005).
