The Kennedy Center, BONDVISON Media, and BLACK GIRLS ROCK!™ collaborate to co-produce the BLACK GIRLS ROCK! Festival™ (BGR!FEST™), an immersive live experience designed to celebrate the music and culture of Black  women artists, thought leaders, and creatives. The three-day event will take place on International Women’s Day weekend, March 8–10.

Celebrity DJ, CEO, and founder of BLACK GIRLS ROCK!, Beverly Bond, established BGR! FEST™ as a complementary platform to the BLACK GIRLS ROCK! brand to further its mission to create spaces for black women-centered content. The inaugural BGR!FEST™ will feature a variety of events and performances by groundbreaking women. Highlights include: BGR!FEST  Welcome Party (free to the public) featuring DJ’s MC Lyte and Beverly Bond; panel discussions and book talk with Beverly Bond and featured guests from her book BLACK GIRLS ROCK!: Owning Our Magic. Rocking Our Truth; and a culminating ROCK! LIKE A GIRL concert showcasing groundbreaking women who stretch the boundaries of musicianship, lyricism, and artistic expression. Grammy®–nominated singer Jazmine Sullivan will be joined by D.C.’s own emcee, vocalist, and rising star, Maimouna Youssef a.k.a Mumu Fresh, as well as other surprise guests.

“I am thrilled to be launching the BGR!FEST with the prestigious Kennedy Center, a true pillar of artistic excellence, and to expand the BLACK GIRLS ROCK! brand to the nation’s capital, home to one of the most vibrant communities of color in the country,” says Bond. “This relationship furthers our mission to build platforms that advance black women’s contributions to the world, and highlight how women of color use art as a tool to drive feminist thought, personal empowerment, and civic engagement.”
