BLACK WOMEN ROCK! is a movement spearheaded by acclaimed poet, jessica Care moore in 2004 during the National Black Arts Festival. BWR is about showcasing the music and stories of Black women who build institutions around their craft and paying homage to those who came before us to empower women who play guitar, cello, drums, sing, or write poetry, to do so on their own terms. 2016 represents the 12th year anniversary of BWR Weekender. Every year the concert has sold out, with eager fans lining up to see moore's well-curated all-woman ensemble. In addition to the the concert, the weekend is filled with an assortment of other activities, including an art exhibition, workshop, panel discussion and meet-and-greet with the performers of BWR.
