In an attempt to bring back black and brown communities full force to Lincoln Center and reclaim a cultural space left vacant since the end of an annual city-wide competition in the early 80s, Women of Color in the Arts, in association with the National Double Dutch League, presents "‘Til The Street Lights Come On," a two-day event at Lincoln Center Out of Doors highlighting the urban tradition of #doubledutch and celebrating the #womenofcolor that helped pioneer the sport and set its course to becoming an international phenomenon influencing both art and culture.
The weekend features demonstrations, jump-ins, panel discussions, a film screening and exhibition, a culminating concert showcasing Momma's Hip Hop Kitchen, and the seminal competition, the Double Dutch Summer Classic. All programs are FREE and open to the public. No RSVP required.
