Head to the CAC for a performance by the Urban Bush Women and Junebug Productions.

Presented by Urban Bush Women and Junebug Productions with support from the Contemporary Arts Center New Orleans' Performance Support Program, Urban Bush Women and Voices from the Bush is a multi-disciplinary performance inspired by Urban Bush Women’s 30th anniversary program that highlights the company’s 30-year repertory featuring excerpts from "Women’s Resistance," "Shelter," and more.

The performance kicks off Urban Bush Women’s annual Summer Leadership Institute (SLI), a 10-day gathering of artists and activists. This year’s SLI theme, "We Who Believe in Freedom Cannot Rest: Organizing for Racial Equity," is inspired by the civil rights organizer Ella Jo Baker and Michelle Alexander’s book, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness.
