About the Event
Created by Latanya d. Tigner and Lashon Daley in collaboration with the company members, TURNTABLES centers the story of the Cal Bearettes and their struggle to find space and respect on UC Berkeley's campus. Despite being the first majorette-style dance team in the University of California system, these women of color are often relegated to practice in parking garages, are mocked during games, and are denied athletic funding. The Bearettes symbolize the trials that Black women and women of color have faced as they seek to find resources, provisions, and a safe place to call their own.
