On Saturday April 28th, University of Orange hosted Placemaking 10: Homeboy Came to Orange. The event celebrated the re-release of Homeboy Came to Orange: A Story of People’s Power with speakers, musical performances, and dance. The Cotton Series: Birth of a Workforce was choreographed by UofO Urbanist-in-Residence Havanna Fisher. “Birth of a Work Force” seeks to uncover the many ways that Black women have had to perform labor in America. From having the responsibility of giving birth to America’s primary free labor workforce for over 200 years all the way to being the forgotten leaders of many labor rights movements in the USA.
