The third installment of SheROCKS, the celebration of women in the arts, is taking place this Saturday and this year’s program is better than ever with new vendors, new sponsors and most importantly, new talent. Dancer/choreographer Queenlin will be performing for the first time at SheROCKS, but she is not new to expressing herself through movement. I caught up with the seasoned dancer to discuss how it feels to be apart of the SheROCKS 2015 and more. Check out the interview below.
Although the disparity between Black lives and non-black lives taken by law enforcement has been an issue for some time, 2014 was a year that catapulted the issue onto the world’s stage. Demonstrations took place around the globe protesting the killing of unarmed Blacks by law enforcement across the United States. New movements were formed, spearheaded by everyday people who before 2014 would have never considered themselves activists. One of those movements was Naturals4Change. I spoke with the founder of Naturals4Change, Natasha Gaspard, and we discussed the marriage between natural hair advocates and those who believe black lives matter.
