Black Women In Jazz & The Arts was created to assist in meeting the unmet needs of women in jazz and the arts professionals.  We create a greater awareness by honoring the many contributions of black female artists and related professionals globally.  Black Women In Jazz & The Arts strives to spotlight the awesome work of females in the arts, jazz vocalists, female jazz instrumentalists, composers, producers, in dance, theater, film, music, and visual arts, who may have gotten lost in the shuffle of time as well as artists who are currently in the spotlight. Through various networking events, education and training, seminars, workshops, award galas, features and interviews, concerts and more, we want to ensure that women are honored as a vital part of the past, present, and future of jazz and the arts. Black Women In Jazz & the Arts operates without regard to race, sex, color, sexual orientation, gender, disability, creed, religion or national origin.
