The Clap Back – 1 Year Anniversary! @ Never Apart
The Clap Back is a space to informally discuss everything from pop culture phenomena to divisive political issues while sipping tea and stuffing your face with pastries. Celebrate its first anniversary with an afternoon inspired by Solange’s new album A Seat at the Table, with hosts Kosisochukwu Nnebe and Keesha Chng and sounds curated by Colin MusoNi.
The event will unpack the sounds and visuals of the album, look back on a year of the Clap Back, and look forward to the shapes it may take in the future. 10.12.2016
