All-stars of the dance world come together to celebrate dance, music & American history. Former soloists with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company, Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble, & over 40 Broadway shows, perform beautifully crafted pieces to honor the legacy of DMX, Little Richard, Harry Belafonte, Nina Simone & Maya Angelou.

Using dance and music to teach and celebrate Black history, the power of dancers in their 50’s uplift, inspire, and create a beautiful healing space for us to see ourselves and see each other.
