The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital  is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.

Consistent with the vision of our founder, Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.

A unique opportunity for the entire community to support, not just a musical icon who is donating his time and talent, but the students of the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, the next generation of artist icons.

Last season, eight colored women from the east coast brought to sold out houses, honest and invigorating performances that moved audiences to demand more..This season, we are proud to answer that call by bringing to the stage “For Colored Girls Waiting to Exhale” with additional stories of women from the African Diaspora.

From the shores of Africa to the streets of Harlem, join us as we explore “herstory”, from colored girls to black women, finding their moments to exhale. This is a limited engagement opening January 29th & 30th @ 7pm and January 31st @ 5pm. Three shows only! If you missed the first two runs or even if you didn’t, you don’t want to miss this expanded version of the show.

Pre-sales have already moved us dangerously close to a sell out..again! So don’t wait to claim your seat. We appreciate your enthusiasm and support…looking forward to seeing you there!

–  The colored girls.

About Art Creates Life

ACL was founded by Executive Director, Tracie S. Jenkins in the summer of 2002. It was housed in the Johnson Memorial Baptist Church opening its’ program with 12 students. Art Creates Life was then given the opportunity to operate out of the Children’s Studio Public Charter School for Arts and Architecture in 2003.

It has since served over 1,400 children in the DC Metropolitan area and abroad from various institutions such as schools, family and child services, and local community centers through our year round programs. In 2006, ACL expanded its reach to the international community by taking students to West Africa annually participating in service missions as well as artistic exchange. Art Creates Life is currently located in the Howard/Shaw community.
