In 2016, local artists Baindu Conte-Coomber, Marianne Harkless Diabate and Mckersin Previlus embarked on the journey of creating a dance festival that brings together artists from different dance styles, all connected by their African roots, all having had a major influence on American culture. With the mission of bringing communities together, and increasing cultural awareness and understanding, Racines was born. In its fourth year, Racines Black Dance Festival brings Boston-area artists to the Starlight Stage with programming curated by festival founder Marianne Harkless Diabate.
