Bronx-based Artists and Non-profit Organizations timeline, 1840-2014

This chronological timeline is an effort to further develop and highlight Bronx-based arts and non-profit organizations created by the vision and dedication of borough residents and artists.

Building on previous work by other Bronx organizations and individuals, this timeline places grassroots arts and culture organizations, as well as social and environmental justice organizations, at the center of the boroughs’ history. Significant moments in the history of the Bronx and the Puerto Rican diaspora are also included to provide context.

MALEEK WASHINGTON

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 3 | 8PM

BAAD! Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance

Shadows of Heaven: Bronx Blues

In this visceral work, Maleek Washington confronts the complexities of family, incarceration, labor, and passage as it relates to his experience as a Black male in America. Weaving hip-hop and ballet with theater and visual art, Washington maps memories of displacement, failure, and joy in a powerful homage to family legacy. Sculpted by mentorship, storytelling, and space, Shadows of Heaven invites viewers to witness, question, and imagine the creation of this tale of Bronx blues.

Mentors: Sidra Bell, Francesca Harper

Performed by: Danielle Mills, Sophia "Wet Paint" Dawson, Chet Gold, and Maleek Washington  

Writer: Niya Nicholson
