Brooklyn Talks: Chani Nicholas and Tourmaline SOLD OUT

Thursday, January 9, 2020

7–9 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

This event is now sold out.

Beloved astrologer Chani Nicholas joins artist and filmmaker Tourmaline for a conversation about the intersection of astrology and storytelling. Chani Nicholas celebrates her first book, You Were Born for This, an introduction to how your birth chart—a snapshot of the sky at the moment you took your first breath—reveals your unique talents, opportunities, and challenges. Tourmaline’s films highlight the capacity for Black queer and trans social life to influence the world, and have been featured in multiple Museum exhibitions and events, including Happy Birthday, Marsha! (2018) and Salacia (2019). The conversation is followed by a book signing with the author, with books available for purchase from Books Are Magic.

Tickets are $25 and include Museum general admission (purchase tickets for yasiin bey: Negus separately). Member tickets are $20. Not a Member? Join today!
