09 Mar: Dance Black Joy: Global Affirmations and Defiance
In February, A. Nia Austin-Edwards, a longtime Angela's Pulse collaborator, attended Dance Black Joy: Global Affirmations and Defiance. The 3-day convening was a dynamic space of dialogue, performance and celebration; she reflected some voices and residue from the experience in poetry.

07 Dec: Get a Glimpse of our Freedom Stories
Last month, we gathered at the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics to kick off our Fifth Anniversary Season with Story Circles on Organizing Toward Vision in an Age of Resistance. We were led by DWB founder Paloma McGregor and the incredible Wendi Moore-O'Neal, daughter of John O'Neal, the originator of the Story Circle process we have used at several gatherings.
