Don't Stop! Get it, Get it: A Pan African History of Twerk

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Twerking is a Black dance tradition originating in West Africa with a rich history in the black belt region of the south. This tradition has been co-opted by white culture in ways that obscure its richness, technical virtuosity, and uses for healing. We will honor this rich cultural tradition and explore West African origins of twerk, various schools of black belt region twerking, and examples of twerk music throughout history while reflecting on its evolution within black cultures.
