We launched a Kickstarter campaign on November 16, 2022, to fund the first step of protecting the amazing work of Oakland Ballet Company. Within 10 days we reached our first baseline goal of $10,000 and in the end, met our stretch goal of $25,000.

We reached this important milestone with the generous donations of all listed below. From the team at ChromaDiverse and the OBC Legacy Project Commitee…WE THANK YOU! OBCLegacy.org

We recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of the release of our book, “Dance Theatre of Harlem: A History, A Movement, A Celebration.” It was an amazing year and we’re happy to report that it continues to sell well. In fact, the audio version was launched and can be found at https://rbmediaglobal.com/dance-theatre-of-harlem/

Sharing the Dance Theatre of Harlem story with you is one of the most affirming experiences I’ve had in my life. As the book is enjoyed by many around the world, it reinforces my inspiration for the founding mission of ChromaDiverse – to preserve, protect and present history in the performing arts.

Starting during Black History Month, stay tuned for our “Trailblazers in the Arts” series on our social channels, spotlighting incredible artists from around the world!

Love to you all,
CEO, ChromaDiverse, Inc.
