For 2018 YGB performed in over 15 different schools, events and activities dedicated to celebrating Black History Month. We always use the month to perform the pieces that help walk people through the history of our struggles. This year we featured old pieces like We Wear the Mask by Paul Lawrence Dunbar, Negritude, by James Emanuel and Who Can Be Born Black by Mari Evans. We also performed pieces by Lauryn Hill, Erica Badu, and some of our signature originals. We toured two groups, the Kids and our older group made up of many of the former Kings and Sheroes. Some of the places we visited included University High School, Bentley High School and Oakland School for the Arts. We also performed in several elementary schools in Berkeley, Oakland, San Leandro and San Francisco, and we were featured in events at the Asian Cultural Center, and the De Young Museum. We are thankful to our community of supporters and those who continue to book us year after year to represent our voices and contribute to your events. We have a series of shows coming up in the next month, before we focus on preparing for an end of the year celebration for YGB. More on that to come.
