While The Black is Beautiful movement started in the 1960s, this fight for equal rights and a positive perception of the Black body starts much earlier in American history and the fight continues today. What makes beauty and wellness such an essential part of Black culture? Join us for a festival of Black owned and operated beauty and wellness products as we celebrate Marcus Gardley’s A Wonder in My Soul. Then, following the Saturday evening performance, stick around for a special post-show conversation featuring several business owners talking about their products and the evolution of Black beauty.
