Oakland, California USA, June 2017
Oakland based Artists and Educators Candice “Antique” Davis and Hodari Davis are traveling from the United States to several countries around the world, on a campaign to celebrate and affirm Black Beauty.
Next month these longtime social activists will be performing live concerts, hosting festivals and conferences, and leading workshops in Uganda and Ghana, as part of the first leg of the Candice Antique World Tour.
This tour and campaign is focused on promoting Pan African identity, with an emphasis on the unity of Black people represented in their hair. The premiere song “Nappy” is an ode to natural Black beauty and features new music from Candice Antique produced and recorded in Ghana, West Africa.
Candice Antique is an international recording artist with over 20 years experience as a thought leader and practitioner in the field of Equity and Arts Education. This will be her third time touring in Africa, having delivered concerts in Ghana and Zanzibar in over the past two years.
Hodari Davis is the former National Program Director of Youth Speaks, and the long time innovator and producer of the Brave New Voices Festival. He works as support for Candice both on and off stage as her road manager, creative director and husband.
Together they are founders of Edutainment For Equity, an Arts Based Professional Development Firm based in Oakland.
Hodari Davis said, “We intend to use culture, art, and education as tools to make an impact on the challenges we see when we travel and when we are at home.”
Edutainment for Equity is a multifaceted organization designed to address racial and social inequity on a global scale.
They provide consulting and professional development for organizations, produce and perform contemporary music in various genres, have a youth services division, and lead international campaigns and tours all over the world, featuring the incredibly talented voice of Candice Antique.
”We want to remind people that we are all connected. That we share a bond through struggle.” Said the beautiful Candice Antique.
