Roadwork's 40th Anniversary: Three Voices

7/7/2018 at 6:00 PM

The Smithsonian Folklife Festival celebrates Roadwork’s 40th anniversary as a D.C.-based multiracial coalition that puts women artists on the road locally and globally, with a performance featuring D.C. artists Ysaÿe Maria Barnwell, Be Steadwell, and Carolyn Malachi. Founded in 1978 by women leaders from African American civil rights, women’s, global justice, and lesbian-feminist movements, Roadwork aims at transforming consciousness and creating new movements in global arts and social justice.  You can learn more about Roadwork here.

Presented in collaboration with the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. For more information, please visit https://festival.si.edu/2018/sisterfire
