Roots & Wings is a unique theatre project integrating art,
poetry, dance, music and performance as catalysts
for restoration of self and community.
Roots & Wings began this journey over a year ago. Our goal was to take a deep dive into Urban, Appalachian, & West African culture and explore how that shapes the experience of being black in Kentucky. We worked with the Youth in the five Zones of Hope , traveled to Harlan and to Senegal. Join Roots and Wings November 5th & 6th as we bring these experiences to the stage in a special performance!
