Chicago Dance History Project stands resolutely with Black Lives Matter. We will continue to witness and document the contributions of African-Americans to dance in Chicago, and across American culture. The individual oral histories of Black artists in Chicago must be heard and seen in order to understand the full story of race in our city’s history. We thank the friends, artists, and collaborators of all races and cultural communities who have contributed to Chicago Dance History Project. We understand the tools of our work to be fundamental in the pursuit of social justice. Our work is to listen, to learn, and to share.
