From Maya Angelou posters to Angela Davis' speech calling for 'resistance in the classrooms, resistance on the job, resistance in our art...' the Women's March on Washington was a historic and momentous occasion that we were blessed to take part in. We will stand up and continue to march every day for education, equality, women's rights, human rights, and justice for all. Through the arts, Wide Rainbow will continue it's mission to educate and create access for low income communities to connect with empowered female artists, teachers, mentors, and progressive thinkers. We will continue to create art, discourse, and opportunities that expand beyond circumstance; instilling confidence in each other and making just change for a better future. #WhyIMarch
