Black Women, Arts and Activism; Nina Simone, Miriam Makeba tribute festival

The Black Women, Arts and Activism Festival; Nina Simone, Miriam Makeba Tribute aims to highlight and inspire the inseparable connection between the arts and activism as it relates directly to women of African descent in the United States and the African diaspora. Our goal is to highlight, educate and empower women and their communities to identify and use strategies to work for racial justice.

The far reaching goal of the Festival is to educate and empower Black women and through them, black men and families. We will do this by working with women to develop tools and strategies to overcome racial injustice everywhere. Our approach is to use art as a vehicle of conversation, developing and sharing tools for motivation, action and moving our communities forward despite economic and social circumstances.

Looking forward to it! 

Peac, love and light!
