When we talk about feminism, it’s important to ask whose power and liberation is being centered. White feminism focuses only on the comfort, empowerment, and freedom of white, middle to upper-class women at the expense of others on the margins, and doesn’t take responsibility for its own part in the oppression of Women of Color. We can’t engage with the Sacred Feminine without naming this injustice and imagining a better way. Join us for this important conversation about racism and feminism with PaKou Her, co-founder of the Community Alliance for Racial Equity, and Digital Advocacy, Growth and Innovation Campaigner at ParentsTogether. 

We are super excited to be holding our first Classy Christmas Mixer at the very hip and cool Amigoni Urban Winery down in the Westbottoms here in Kansas City.

This Christmas season, The Nutcracker is getting a new look, courtesy of some #blackgirlmagic. The famous two-act ballet is an adaption of E. T. A. Hoffmann's story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. The holiday favorite shares the story of a girl’s Christmas toy, the Nutcracker, that comes alive to battle the Mouse King. This year, the Kansas City Ballet will feature Whitney Huell as the sugar plum fairy, making her the Ballet’s first Black ballerina in a leading role.
