I am so happy to introduce and share with you THE RESISTANCE PROJECT.
This is personally important to me because this project is about uplifting black women. And as a black man, I am committed to empowering the voices of my sisters, mothers, aunties, daughters!
Here are the vision, mission and values for the Resistance Project:
The Resistance Project
The Resistance Project uplifts the voices and representation of women of color.
Founded by artistic director Duane Cyrus in testament to the women who have helped shape his life, and the lives of many others.
The Resistance Project will highlight black women artists, scholars, entrepreneurs, and activists with empowered art work and events
This is done through community engagement, performance, and development workshops.
Workshops include creativity & multidisciplinary art; health & wellness; personal finance; and a more equitable reading of the contributions made to American culture by women of color. The Resistance Project is available to women of all ages and backgrounds.
Entrepreneurship (as a value and not a commodity)
