Harlem Stage and the National Black Theatre celebrate the contributions of Black women pioneers from the Civil Rights and Black Arts movements with Mothers of the Movements. This two-part series pays tribute to iconic women including Dr. Barbara Ann Teer, Abbey Lincoln, Ella Baker, Shirley Chisholm.

At Harlem Stage, longtime Lincoln collaborator Marc Cary re-imagines the seminal Freedom Now Suite album, We Insist!, in a concert that features Terri Lyne Carrington, Reggie Workman, Sameer Gupta, Edmar Colón and special surprise guests.
