An evening of jazz, wine, cheese and art to celebrate the resilience, strength, and courage of women and girls for the 2023 Women’s History Month in North Miami…
NORTH MIAMI, FL — After the resounding success of AfriKin Art: The Gaze Africana that opened MLK Weekend through Black History Month 2023. AfriKin Art and the North Miami Community Redevelopment Agency (NMCRA) are once again collaborating to present their next installation, Women Walk on Water – a contemporary fine art exhibition and call for the end of injustice and violence against women and girls for Women’s History Month 2023. Opens Sunday, March 5th, 2023 through March 31st, 2023.
On Friday, March 24th, from 5 pm to 8 pm we will be hosting a special Friday after-work network evening as a tribute to women in jazz. Women have been integral to the development of jazz music since its inception. From the early days of the genre, women have been instrumental in pushing the boundaries of jazz and creating a unique sound. While many of the pioneers of jazz are men, there have been countless women innovators and powerhouses that have left their mark on the genre. This Women’s History Month, AfriKin Art: Women Walk on Water fine art exhibition will be presenting a tribute to these amazing women.
The concert will feature Melissa “Moonchild” Stokes and friends. The music will be a celebration of the strength, elegance, innovation, and devotion that women have embodied in the evolution of jazz music. They will be paying homage to the music of Ella Fitzgerald, Nancy Wilson, Nina Simone, and even contemporary artists like Esperanza Spalding. The music will be a blend of classic jazz and modern sounds, a fitting tribute to the women who have left their mark on the genre.
The evening’s backdrop will be the all-women fine art exhibition AfriKin Art: Women Walk on Water. It will be a celebration of the strength, elegance, innovation, and devotion that women have brought to jazz music. This is an event not to be missed, so make sure to come out and celebrate a tribute to the amazing women of jazz music!
