Broadway Advocacy Coalition to present inaugural Fellowship Hall festival
The event will celebrate and support Black femme identifiying artists and activists.
The Broadway Advocacy Coalition (BAC) will present their first Fellowship Hall festival, with performances from May 20 - 23. The Fellowship Hall festival will see nine fellows showcase their projects they’ve been developing throughout the pandemic, while championing up and coming Black femme identifying artists across the country.
“The work of our artivism fellows has produced the potion, spell and essence of Black girl magic personified”, artistic Director Chesray Dolpha said in a statement. “I stand as a witness to these Black women’s commitment to justice and equity. Through their work, I can imagine a world where Black women and our humanity is fully seen and affirmed.”
The Fellowship Hall festival commences on May 20 with performances from the nine fellows. The fellows will be joined by Dolpha, co-founder Amber Iman and program managers Dria Brown and Nia Akilah Robinson.
