This month's feature: BROWNSTAR

Formed in 2007 BROWNSTAR is a two-man spoken-word duo bursting forth from the pens and dreams of emcee-poet-performers PUSHKAR NORTH STAR SHARMA and SATHYA SOUTH STAR SRIDHARAN. Grown in the Heartland of America but Flavored with the Masala of the Motherland, BROWNSTAR shouts what often goes unheard, giving BROWN a voice and song— presenting a fresh perspective and exploring the contradictions, complexities, and epiphanies of South-Asian identities.

Utilizing original performance pieces, BROWNSTAR walks the tightrope of hyphenation, their stage show ignites a conversation about South-Asia and its diaspora, exploring everything from Kal Penn to Rushdie to the legacy of Gandhiji and the contemporary politics of The-Louisiana-Governor-Formerly-Known-As-Piyush. BROWNSTAR reveals their unique perspective while asking those timeless, human questions about our world, our galaxy, and our universe.

General Meeting @ 6:30pm

There will also be a general meeting at the bookstore before the open mic so folks who are interested in learning more about Boston Progress or getting involved are encouraged to attend. These meetings are always open to the general public.
