Apollo Women: Performance and Activism

"You can't help it. An artist's duty, as far as I'm concerned, is to reflect the times." -Nina Simone

Be inspired by legendary Apollo women who used their musical talents for activism. Together we will explore their music, environment, and challenges they faced to understand what impact these trailblazers made on entertainment history. Most importantly, we will discover why this is important for students to understand and how to implement the Apollo Theater and activist art into your curricula.

In this workshop we will:

• Learn strategies to incorporate the performing and activist arts into your teaching practice.
• Engage in classroom activities to help your students to feel empowered to use their own voice and the arts to stand out.
• Discover how women artists/activists have connected with the Apollo Theater.
• Gain insight about the intersection of activism and performance as it relates to race and gender.


Online Via Zoom. Once registered, you will receive a zoom link via email prior to the event.


**1.5 hours of CTLE credit will be available for participation**
