About the band:
Black Folks Don't Swim? is a world based movement of musicians, songwriters, composers, and activists generating comfortable spaces for all to come together and feel uplifted through music. This gender bending music group collectively continues to expand their magnetic energy in and around the District, resonating their soulful arrangements in venues where artistic expression lives and breathes. BFDS? is not a statement but rather an intentional prompt to examine the thought processes and conditioning of popular beliefs and the power structures that be. Black Folks Don't Swim? Who don't swim? We float!
