Fast times for Duke University

On Feb. 3 Duke University hosted an educational art show that involved strippers and burlesque dancers. The show is called the “Sex Workers Art Show” and has toured at hundreds of college campuses across the country for the past six years. Most of the performances were readings that described performer’s experiences in the sex industry.

On March 8 in the Digital Library Auditorium the Ujima project in conjunction with the Black Women’s Leadership Forum of Riverside presented writer/director/producer Uhuti’s first stage production.
