The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech presents a talk with members of the Urban Bush Women on Saturday, April 28, 2018.

Before experiencing Urban Bush Women’s "Hair and Other Stories", starting at 7:30 pm engage with members of the ensemble during this informal discussion.

For more than 30 years, choreographer Jawole Willa Jo Zollar’s company, Urban Bush Women, has given expression to the vitality and boldness of African American women. Hair and Other Stories is a multidisciplinary work addressing matters of race, gender identity, and economic inequality in the lives of African American women. The company has made an indelible mark on the field with bold, innovative, demanding, and exciting works that challenge long-held assumptions about women, people of color, body types, movement styles, society, and history. The company weaves contemporary dance, music, and text with the history, culture, and spiritual traditions of African Americans and the African diaspora.

Admission is free on a first-come, first-served basis, but to guarantee your seat, register online at
