“Austin While Black” to screen at MonkeyWrench Books

Thursday, July 23, 2015 by Nora Ankrum

MonkeyWrench Books will be hosting a screening Thursday evening of “Austin While Black,” a new Web series from journalists Evelyn Ngugi and Doyin Oyeniyi highlighting the lives of black Austinites. As described on the show’s website, the series tells “the stories that often get left out of discussions about Austin’s past, present, and future.” Tonight’s screening will include the first four episodes, which feature photographer Hakeem Adewumi, hip-hop group Magna Carda, restaurateur Nubian Queen Lola and dancer China Smith. Ngugi and Oyeniyi will lead a discussion on each episode. The event will be held at MonkeyWrench Books, 110 E. North Loop Blvd., from 7:30 to 9 p.m.
