    In light and love amidst Black History Month, Black Girl Magik & BUFU are so excited to introduce the “Black Legacy Dinner." As we are continually inspired by the work and presence of honored guests and our ancestors, it is clear to us the need to come together as a community, convene, and celebrate our brilliant Black contemporaries - as well as call in those who came before us. Our plan is for this dinner to be one part, a cute turn up with our faves for our faves. There will be a community altar and a moment to share a little bit about these ancestors together.

    It is sure to be a beautiful evening.
    ♥ So please bring yourself,
    ♥ a love,
    ♥ an ancestor,
    ♥ and a yummy dish.


    Black Legacy Fund: A percentage of funds will go to black artists and innovators seeking to transform for our community. The submission process will go live in the coming days. Committee will be formed by event organizers and black legacy honored guests.

    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” 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.
