About the Awards




The Black Women In Jazz & The Arts Awards

 This black tie event features a night of glamour and elegance showcasing the immense talent that black women have in jazz and in the arts.   Our mission is to create a greater awareness of the many vital contributions  African American Female artists have made in the past, present and to the future of jazz.  We celebrate the awesome work of known artists, spotlight the up and coming artists, and honor the sophisticated ladies who present such phenomenal work but may have gotten lost in the shuffle.  This includes the following :

 African American, Afro-Mexican, Afro-Latino, Afro- Argentine, Afro-Brazilian, Afro-European, Afro Bolivian, Afro-Colombian, Afro-Guyanese, Afro-Peruvian, Afro-Bahamian, Afro-Barbadian Afro-Caribbean, Afro-Cuban, Afro-Dominican, Afro-Puerto Rican, Afro-Saint Lucian, Afro-Trinidadian and Tobagonian, Afro-Vincentian Afro-Asian, Italians of African descent, Afro-Greeks, Afro-French, and Afro-Germans.
