The Black Iris Project: Madiba At The Schomburg In Harlem

July+14+Black+Iris+crop2Founded in 2016 by choreographer Jeremy McQueen, The Black Iris Project is a ballet collaborative and education vehicle which creates new, relevant classical ballet works that celebrate diversity and black history. Based in New York City, the project hosts a team of predominantly minority artists who deliver cross-discipline, original works.

Championing individuality, the collaborative highlights the black community’s incentive to encourage and inspire youth of color to pursue art, movement and music as an expressive outlet and a means for collective healing.

Susan Fales-Hill, TV producer, author, screenwriter and arts and education advocate, will moderate a post-performance conversation with the talent.
