So many of us have been hurt around our voices and are seeking healing.
These circles create a space where we can receive emotional nourishment by disrupting the notion that we can not sing together.
We are firm believers that music, tears, and laughter are not separate. We treat them all as a critical part of the human voice. Singing together, creating sound together, and practicing listening together are a few of the ways in which we reach for each other.
People who have been told they can not sing are especially encouraged to attend.
White supremacy is really invested in us believing that we cannot sing, especially when in community. Disrupt the racist messaging in your mind and lift your voices in song with us.
This space is African Heritage-led, and all are welcome to attend.
Participating in our song circles look many different ways: singing, harmonizing, jamming with your voice, tapping your feet, snapping your fingers, or listening. There is no requirement to sing!
We often also include spoken word, invitations (not requirements) for community involvement, and conversations about race and racism in between songs.
