Celebrating Our Golden Year

For nearly 50 years, the Gantt has used its voice to present, preserve, and celebrate African American culture. We tell stories from the Black experience, shifting perspectives, shaping society, and inspiring generations. As we approach a major milestone, there is much to reflect on, to celebrate, to elevate, and consider for the next 50. Come along with us for this fantastic cultural voyage!
