For three decades Urban Bush Women’s powerful moves have shaken theaters and inspired communities celebrating the culture of the African diaspora. As part of their five-month project with FirstWorks this season, Urban Bush Women return to Providence in February 2016 for two jam-packed weeks of workshops and talks.
