Ella Baker Day

Ella Baker DayElla Baker Day is a way to honor and celebrate Ms. Baker’s lifetime of community organizing and civil rights activism on behalf of communities, especially women, of color. The 2018 Ella Baker Day will feature a social justice-themed art contest from local middle and high school aged youth. Finalists will be invited to read, present, and perform during our Ella Baker Day event on Thursday, April 5 at 6:30 p.m.

There will be two categories for submission, written (which would include poetry, essays, short stories, etc.) and visual/performance (which would include any type of visual or performance art). Submissions are due March 8 and finalists will be selected by March 22. We will provide all finalists with a certificate of accomplishment from Loyola and contest winners with an additional monetary award. The event will be held at WombWork Productions, Inc., located at 3121 Walbrook Ave, Baltimore, MD 21216 . For more information, please visit the WombWork Productions, Inc. website. We are excited to celebrate your creativity! Thank you for giving us the chance to learn from your experiences and to better understand and connect with our own neighbors, all in the spirit of Ms. Baker’s legacy.
