About


The Black Banjo Reclamation Project is an ongoing community and land-based development that focuses on the cultural folk traditions of the Banjo in relation to Black and African Diasporic communities.

Comprised of educators, musicians, historians, crafters, builders, healers and land stewards, our work is deeply rooted in the connection, understanding and learning that comes from community engagement in Black, Indigenous, POC and White-European communities. For three years, we have been facilitating musical training, workshops, learning spaces, as well as the distribution, repair and building of banjos. The work of the BBRP is to support Black people and communities in accessing, experiencing and stewarding musical traditions that come from their own ancestral and cultural lineages.

In the 2022 program schedule ::

- Black Banjo Weekend Campout and Build, Sacramento CA March 2022
- Research Project 2022
- Black Banjo Fellowship September 2022

 BBRP is a multi-cultural collaboration that promotes conversation and action in healing the ancestral, historical, cultural and racially dividing wounds in this country and the world. 

Our complete budget takes the next five years into account. For the 2022 year going into the 2023 year, we plan to raise 100,000 for programming. We look forward to connecting and collaborating through this work! With much appreciation and gratitude.
