Arts and Letters

The Nassau Alumnae Chapter Arts and Letters committee strives to proudly advance the black experience by showcasing the artistic contributions of African Americans in the past, present and  future- elevating them to public attention through the medium of music, dance, theatre and poetry. 

Our initiatives are aligned with those of the National Commission on Arts and Letters, and the Eastern Region’s Arts in Action and Dreamworks initiatives.  Our overarching goal is to ensure that the people in our communities have opportunities to participate and be exposed to projects, events and activities designed to acknowledge and highlight the contributions of African Americans in various art forms.  This is accomplished through organizing and highlighting collective events and activities in various genres, as well by promoting respectful and positive representation and depiction of African Americans in the media and the arts.
