RIP Jane Cortez
It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce that Jayne Cortez, a poet and performance artist of the highest order, made her peaceful transition this morning. She served as a mentor to many within the BRC circles – LaTasha Diggs and Carl Hancock Rux immediately spring to mind – and she appeared in the BRC’s presentation of ‘Four Women’ at Lincoln Center in 2009. Rest easy, Jayne. Rest easy.
