Go Team Banjo Class!
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.
Reclaiming Banjo and Black Earth-Based Connection through Self-Determination and Reparations
The Black Banjo Reclamation Project is a creative eco-system that curates musical, cultural and land-based opportunities for Black, Afro-Diasporic communities around the world to work with the banjo as a tool for reclaiming ancestral wisdom & creating Afro-futures. By teaching and learning banjo playing techniques with African and Black centered perspectives, our unique facilitation of programs which includes banjo building & repair, highlights the practice of land stewardship and the roots of Black liberation found in our folkways. Through economic solidarity and self-determination, we are paving pathways for restorative narratives to use music as a tool for transforming our world.
Our 2022 program schedule included ::
- Black Banjo Weekend Campout and Build, Sacramento CA April
- Black Banjo Fellowship in Port Townsend WA June
- Chicago Youth Banjo Build July-August
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.
Stay tuned in for 2023 programs!
