Poetry and Jazz Series

Darryl teamed up with EJ Antonio, Andrew Bemkey, Jasper Cain and Joy S Rosenthal to form One Breath Rising, Inc. in 2015.  One Breath Rising is a non-profit organization committed to providing opportunities for diverse artists working in the African American tradition to collaborate, and to present and document their work.

This is an extension of the series Darryl started in 2010.  In the 2012-2013 season, the series was presented at St. Augustine’s Church, on Manhattan’s lower east side.  The 2011-2012 season brought the series to the Dwyer Cultural Center in Harlem. And in the 2010-2011 season, performances were at Zora’s Art Space in Brooklyn. Currently, One Breath Rising has an ongoing Second Sunday Series at 440 Gallery in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
