PROJECTS
Underground Railroad in Western New York Residency October 2009 to Present, Lead Teaching Artist
Young Audiences of WNY had the unique opportunity in 2010, to spend several months developing a residency for school age students that would increase literacy and understanding of racial disparities, and access to African-American artists. With support from the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo, we worked with an advisory committee to create a program around the history of the Underground Railroad in Western New York. We continue providing this residency in schools throughout the eight counties of Western New York each year.
