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

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.
