In 1984, Jawole Willa Jo Zollar founded Urban Bush Women (UBW) 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 they are turning 30 soon!
Touring, facilitating workshops that lift up the repertory & their social justice commitment, and nurturing young leaders–particularly women of African descent–are not always highly compensated with money. Let’s reward the power of collective work and responsibility and the transformative power of art that emphasizes undertold stories.
Donate here to celebrate UBW’s 30-year history, ensuring 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. I AM, YOU ARE, WE ARE: MOVING FORWARD WITH PURPOSE.
