"We are fearless, we are strong, and we're ready to carry on"
In 2022, we celebrated twelve years (and counting) of proudly partnering to provide quality programming and events designed to enliven the African spirit in every living being we touch. Our collective work as Indigo’s Cultural Arts Centers has allowed us to sponsor the Greensboro Kwanzaa Collective--a thriving and long standing program and partner. We have hosted a number of community events, and honored many of our cultural and communal elders and ancestors through our work. We have curated spaces for the healing and transformation of Black Women through our Healing Wheel Retreats and Conferences. We have mentored and cultivated the spiritual lives of young people in our community through our Rites of Passage program that has graduated two cohorts and plans to open registration for the next group of initiates very soon.
Indigo's Cultural Arts Centers strives to provide culturally relevant programming and progressive conversations around the significance of the African experience in America. We use the framework of the Nguzo Saba--the Seven Principles of Kwanzaa--to teach, to celebrate, and to remember what makes us a unique people.
