With a genre-defying, expansive sound, Black Folks Don't Swim? is a world-based Black Queer-led movement of musicians, songwriters, composers and activists generating comfortable spaces for all to come together and feel uplifted through music.

After their electric performance at NextNOW Fest 2019, the band returns for the closing night of NextNOW SummerFest. Be sure to also join us after the livestream performance for a post-performance conversation!

As you enjoy NextNOW SummerFest, we invite you to take a moment to reflect on and acknowledge the Indigenous roots of the land that you’re on. The land on which The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center stands on is the ancestral land of the Piscataway tribe. We encourage you to use a resource like to learn more.
