No Small Matter: Creating an Anti-Racist Organization

Published: 2020-02-03

It can be argued that methodologies used by Urban Bush Women (UBW) came before the language used to define them. In this article, Jawole Willa Jo Zollar describes the anti-racist and community work that have been core practices at UBW before they were largely understood as fundamental to the arts, and vice versa. While UBW is highly conscious about the way they enter, build with, and exit a community, they are now turning that around to explore how they can do that within their own organization. Through experimenting with new models for creating anti-racist office culture, UBW continues to pioneer the notion of advocacy from within.
