The Harlem Renaissance

This extravagant fundraiser celebrates JXTA’s direct connection to the Harlem Renaissance, a movement birthed from hatred, injustice, and cruelty; an era that re-defined freedom and excellence through an explosion of genius and creativity; a legacy that continues to empower Black, Brown, and Youth Artists of Color today. We’ll celebrate the past, present, and future of Black expression and power through art, music, and dancing – all to fund the future of Youth Artists in our community.

Celebrating 100 Years of Art & Culture


Sankofa, a word derived from Ghana, Africa, represents the idea of “returning to go forward” or “learning from the past to move forward.” In the spirit of Sankofa, we will physically pair our elegant attire with modern streetwear sneakers. Guests will celebrate the past, present, and future of Black expression through art, music, dancing, and community.
