Art and Culture As We Shelter In Place 

Dance. Music. Theatre. 
Monday, January 11th, 2021

We are officially out of 2020! Here at BVOH we are so grateful for our community and the support we have received as we made the pivot to moving our programming to the virtual realm.

Before we get too far into the New Year, we wanted to reflect on our last program of the year, ou
r Virtual Kwanzaa Celebration. Each day from December 26th, 2020 - January 1st, 2021, Ashley Smiley (BVOH Theater Manager) hosted a daily Kwanzaa ceremony  featuring poetry readings, reflections on the Seven Principles (Unity, Self-Determination, Collective Work and Responsibility, Cooperative Economics, Purpose, Creativity and Faith), and interviews with community members. With all that is occurring in our community and in this Nation, we felt it was even more important to remind folks that the Seven Principles of Kwanzaa are relevant for more than just one week out of the year.

Check out the highlight video below (created by our BVOH Production Manager turned Master Editor Z Perdomo and visit our website to check out the full videos. 

Aaaaand now! Forward motion! Big changes are happening in our community and across the nation and BVOH is grounding itself in its commitment to serving our community through resources, art, culture and community resources. Make sure you follow our social media sites (Twitter, Facebook, InstagramAND subscribe to our YouTube and new Twitch channel to keep up with all that we have cooking up for you, including our 2021 BVOH Virtual Gala coming up in February... more about that very soon!


We love you, and we are so excited to create this new year with you.
