Urban Bush Women just turned 28, and we are gearing up for our 30th anniversary in June 2014! And we need your support!
In 1984, Jawole Willa Jo Zollar founded Urban Bush Women to express in dance, movement and words women's experiences, African American history, and cultural influences of the African Diaspora. Urban Bush Women draws a diverse and committed audience by producing bold and life-affirming work.
And we are turning 30 soon!
Touring, facilitating workshops that lift up the repertory and our social justice commitment, and nurturing young leaders--particularly women of African descent--are not always highly compensated with money. But we keep doing the work--you, Urban Bush Women, all of us. We recognize the power of collective work and responsibility as well as the transformative power of art that emphasizes undertold stories.
Please click the link to the right. Join us as we lift up various moments in our 30-year UBW history and ensure that we have a long legacy to come. WE STAND ON THE SHOULDERS OF THOSE WHO CAME BEFORE US, AND READY OUR OWN SHOULDERS FOR THE NEXT GENERATION. THANK YOU FOR DONATING $30 OR MORE--MONTHLY OR ONE TIME--IN HONOR OF OUR UPCOMING 30th ANNIVERSARY. I AM, YOU ARE, WE ARE: MOVING FORWARD WITH PURPOSE.
