"From Nothing, Our Dreams"
We gather to shift focus
We dance to create anew
New forms, new faces
Bodies not new, but unique
A re/thinking forward
We build on dreams
Weaving Black creative expression
Teaching Black creative tradition
Inspiring direction
Toward authentic depiction
From past we are birthed
Into present we move
This collaboration we offer
Our work, our art

Original poetry by Ryan Sinclaire Davis
