Since its inception in 2016, Dance Afrikana’s mission has been to create a world where people of the African Diaspora are empowered and connected through the African dance tradition, and where dancers have the safe space and platform to grow artistically and culturally. Dance Afriakna is looking for submissions essays, articles, reviews, and interviews related to Black dance written by members of the African or African Diaspora community, and those who are members of Houston Black Dance Collective.
