Join us for an informational introduction, live banjo music by Sacramento’s own Hannah Mayree with community engagement through discussion and group singing! Also, joined by special guest SeeMore Love.
This Black centered event is open to the community as we explore the roots of the banjo as an indigenous African instrument to be reconnected to Black displaced African indigenous diaspora peoples. The Black Banjo Reclamation Project is a multi-cultural collaboration that supports the healing of historical and ancestral trauma in all communities through our relationship with the earth and her people. this is a wheelchair accessible event. All ages will have age appropriate activities.
We use a sliding scale model for attendants because we reserve space for folks regardless of their economic status and want to encourage all who want to learn and participate to be present. We believe that economic reparations are connected to justice and equity.
Hannah Mayree is a creative facilitator and musician who’s work and art lends itself as a tool for redesigning and reconnecting to our roots as humans on this planet. A banjoist, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Hannah founded the Black Banjo Reclamation Project: Cultural Reclamation through Reparations ~ Cultural Revival Through Community.
The Black Banjo Reclamation Project is a cultural and land-based revival project that centers the Black community by reclaiming ancestral wisdom and moving forward with innovations through prospectives of Afro-futurism. Through our extensive network across the country, our work promotes conversation and action in healing the ancestral, historical, cultural and racially dividing wounds in this country and the world.
