Now Thru Nov. 22nd – Rock My Soul Festival

Curated by Julia Bullock and Ava DuVernay’s ARRAY, the Rock My Soul festival celebrates the collaboration and community formed by Black woman-identifying artists.

Inspired by the friendship between composers Florence Price and Margaret Bonds, whose mutual support helped them break down barriers to have their music heard in the classical music world of the early 20th century, Rock My Soul celebrates historical and present-day collaborations between Black women artists.

The phrase itself—Rock My Soul—is drawn both from the world of Black American spirituals and its repurposing by philosopher and educator bell hooks, who communicated the importance of love and community. The sentiment behind it is not, writes festival curator Julia Bullock, “an ethereal, intangible endeavor. It is a call to express yourself, engage with everything within and around you, and find enjoyment while doing it.”
