In February, Juilliard’s Black Student Union (JBSU) presented A Tribute to Black Artistry, featuring 39 students performing 12 original and traditional works with the support of more than 65 JBSU members. The evening called for the audience to participate with “open arms on their journey of love, passion, heartache, sorrow, and joy” as the performers took them on a “deep dive into the Black experience.” And it culminated in a spontaneous celebration of all the work they’d been doing together.
