Stacey Allen, award winning Founder/Artistic Director of Nia’s Daughters Movement Collective, creates dance theater and arts experiences for families. Recently completing a Texas Tour of “The Fairytale Project”, she will bring the dance troupe to her local community of Fort Bend County. “Liturgy of Remembrance” will be performed at the Stimley Blue Ridge Library on Tuesday, August 15th at 4pm. The address is 7007 W. Fuqua St. Missouri City, Texas 77489.

Come and see education expressed in the form of dance! Nia’s Daughters Movement Collective, under the direction of Stacey Allen and her dancers, will provide an educational performance entitled Liturgy of Remembrance, which commemorates the lived histories of enslaved Africans who learned of their freedom under the Freedom Tree in Fort Bend County. This performance will be paired with Our Stories Through Textiles: Quilting and More, facilitated by a quilting instructor, and participants will learn about the rich history of quilting African American history and begin their own quilts. “I am honored that I am able to show the love and resilience of our ancestors. It’s truly liberating to create work surrounding the legacies of love and Texas Freedom Colonies and Black Texans in general” said Stacey Allen, Founder/Artistic Director of Nia’s Daughters Movement Collective. “I am grateful for the community support I’ve received thus far and the opportunity to tour rural areas of Texas and show the legacy of such a strong love story and now to showcase a story out of Fort Bend.”

“The Fairytale Project” premiered in Houston, and has toured to Austin, TX, Nacogdoches, TX, Kyle, TX and more. “Liturgy of Remembrance will touch down in Fort Bend Houston and then next up will be the residency in Freedman’s Town.
