“SLI” is our annual 10-day intensive that serves as the foundation for all of UBW’s community engagement activities. For Urban Bush Women's 16th SLI themed "You, Me, We – Understanding Internalized Racial Oppression and How it Manifests in Our Artistic Community," we will help us answer these important questions:
Do we find ourselves striving for pre-defined ideas of beauty and excellence?
Does our work challenge or recreate dominant frameworks and systems of policing that ignore history, culture, power and lineage?
At You, Me, We - we will find our individual and collective power together!

Dixon Place presents: Was there gay life before Stonewall? Why of course! The Stonewall riots in 1969 were the start of a new era in gay history, an era of increasingly public gay lives, gay community, and gay activism. But there were of course gay lives and a gay community and gay activism before Stonewall. Do you have something connected to gay life before Stonewall? A photo, a letter, a magazine, a book, a photo album, a piece of clothing, a poster or postcard? Something you kept from your own life or that speaks of an older person's life, a friend or relative or? Every Thing Has a Story. Show & Tell or Look & Listen.
