The Legacy Conversation Series provides a glimpse into the history, culture, and artistic vision of the Chicago Black Dance Legacy Project’s eight diverse dance companies. Each monthly, moderated conversation presents a vital opportunity to delve into the stories of creative leaders and their companies, and the significant impact their legacies have made in Chicago and beyond.
Founded in 1972, the Chicago-based Muntu Dance Theatre performs authentic and progressive interpretations of ancient and contemporary African and African-American dance, music, and folklore. A colorful and dynamic company, Muntu brings its audiences out of their seats and into the aisles with its intricate combination of dance, rhythm and song. Muntu is also a company of teachers, an essential element to the perpetuation of the African dance art form and its accurate transmittal to audiences.
