Black Artist Waystation
The YWCA of Lancaster will be presenting The Black Artist Waystation. The Black Artist Waystation focuses on Black artists in visual, performance, or spoken word, highlighting the breath of creativity in our community. The Black Artist Waystation is a private sector initiative to increase the visibility and support of Black artists in Lancaster. The aim is to be a catalyst for artists who create works that define the movement toward freedom and recognize the many efforts that brought us to this moment. They are exploring the link between Lancaster as a waystation on the Underground Railroad and the freedom seekers who rested here; to the struggle for freedom that continues today including the Black Lives Matter movement and the many moments in between of excellence, beauty, and joy.
