What is Black Creativity?

What is Black Creativity? | A concert by Castle of our Skins BSU Fellows

The capstone event of Castle of our Skins’ inaugural, Inter-Collegiate Black Student Union Fellowship.

Over the past five months, students from the Longy School of Music, New England Conservatory, and Boston Conservatory at Berklee’s Black Student Unions gathered for fellowship, mentorship, learning, and creation.

What Is Black Creativity? is a co-curated concert experience that seeks to answer just that by showcasing the breadth, depth, and ever expansive world of Black artistry. Co-Sponsored by Boston Center for the Arts where Castle of our Skins is a Launchpad Resident.
