The 22nd AfroSolo Arts Festival ended yesterday, December 15th, with the closing our visual arts exhibit in the African American Center in San Francisco's Main Public Library. The success of the festival can be summed up by the smiles on the faces of Dr. Linda Ricketts and myself on the opening day of the Festival. Dr. Ricketts' amazing vocal jazz performance, along with Tammy Hall's incredible set, set the tone for the whole festival. I thank the artists, funders, partners, patrons, press, volunteers and everyone else who helped make this one of our best seasons yet!! Photo was taken by Ronald Reed.

Please join Theatre Bay Area tonight in celebrating the extraordinary contributions of Idris Ackamoor and Rhodessa Jones to the San Francisco Bay Area theater scene. They will received the coveted Living Legends Award for their decades of work as Co-Artistic Directors of Cultural Odyssey, the internationally renowned, San Francisco-based performance company. For tickets visit: http://www.theatrebayarea.org/news/316743/Art-As-Social-Activism-The-Legacy-of-Cultural-Odyssey-in-10-Iconic-Photos.htm%23.WCtTK7KHUKo.facebook When Ackamoor founded Cultural Odyssey in 1979, he began to recreate the interdisciplinary, community-based artistic culture he’d observed while traveling and performing around the world. Jones joined in 1983 and together they created original productions that combined music, theatre and dance with a vision of “Art as Social Activism.” Since its early days, Cultural Odyssey has collaborated with such acclaimed artists as Bill T. Jones, Keith Haring and Ntozake Shange, and provided community-based programs like The Medea Project: Theater for Incarcerated Women, which serves female inmates, ex-inmates, HIV positive women, and community participants. Both Ackamoor and Jones have received numerous awards during their careers, tonight’s Living Legends award adds deservedly to their reputation and distinction as valued members of the San Francisco Bay Area theatre community.

Tomorrow, (Dec.3) I will be one of three panelists exploring political/community activism and bridging cultural differences in the Trump era as part of Dance Discourse Project #23. The event is FREE and there will be plenty of time for audience participation. As Trump continues to select his cabinet and make plans for his presidency, many of us are concerned with the direction he is taking the country. This event will center around how we can actively respond to his plans, policies and decisions. Two specific questions I will be exploring are: 1. What is the balance between risk and safety in fulfilling one’s role as artist and community activist? 2. What does it mean to participate in the political process? (Is voting a viable act towards creating change?) The event promises to be exciting, spirited and bold. Hope you can come and add to the dialogue.
