About the event

Lyricist Lounge presents Origin Stories: An intimate conversation and performance along with archival footage screening from the vault of the legendary Lyricist Lounge.

The conversation will be hosted live in person by both co-founders Anthony Marshall and Danny Castro alongside panelists and special guest Talib Kweli.

Brooklyn based Director and Photographer, Myesha Evon Gardner, will also join the conversation. As a visual storyteller, Gardner is compelled to examine and document truthful portrayals of legacy, labor, love, and self-identity in underrepresented communities. She will discuss her journey and share a current project she’s working on with Google Pixel.
