Hot on the heels of the announcement that she's one of this year's National Association of Latino Arts and Culture San Antonio Artist Grant awardees, poet Ariana Brown is celebrating the release of a two-pronged project this Saturday at SAY Sí.

The tandem release is comprised of Brown's new chapbook Sana Sana and the corresponding EP LET US BE ENOUGH, which feature a selection of her spoken word poetry that "explores Black girlhood, the possibilities of queerness, finding your people and trying to survive capitalism."
