    meetups, connections & conversations in every city.

    Meetups

    This is not a typical meetup. In the words of Nina Simone, “We are here to open people up.” You will float on joy. You will cry. You will laugh. And shake away your fears, okurrrt.

    Connections

    At a BGM production, you don’t meet a stranger, you meet a sister. It is the ancestral connectedness throughout the African diaspora that will heal us, teach us and grow us.

    Conversations

    During our tour, we will be strategizing with other organizers and creatives in each city we visit, as we recognize that our work can’t exist within a vaccuum.

    Transcending Time

    “Transcending Time” is a voyage into a future where Black identity is unfettered by a predetermined architecture. It is a visualization exercise exploring the texture, pattern, sound and rhythm of Black possibility. Who do we become when healing from trauma is decentralized? We are creating a ceremony of self-authorization. We are giving ourselves permission to reimagine what was, what is and what can be.

    Reclaiming Pleasure

    "Reclaiming Pleasure" is the assertion of sexual power, alongside a period of recovery. It is a Black woman finding strength in her sensuality and grounding autonomy in the realms of pleasure and desire. It is the rejection of standards set on our ancestors and the distinction between agency and objectification.

    Returning Home

    Returning Home

    “Returning Home” is an exploration back to lands, rituals and traditions that we have always known. It is voyaging and feeling at home as soon as you step foot on the ground. It is hearing music and your soul perceiving the frequencies. It is seeing a familiar face and knowing that somehow you have met before. “Returning Home” is a return to self.
