Coalition to Preserve Reggae Music (CPR) celebrates Women in Reggae


In honor of Women’s History Month, Coalition to Preserve Reggae Music (CPR), the reggae lovers’ organization now celebrating their tenth anniversary, will honor women in a special way in March.


March 2, 2015 - BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- In light of the International observance of Women in history, the CPR focus for March is the mothers and daughters of Reggae Music, the brave, bright and talented women who have successfully navigated a male dominated industry to contribute and leave an indelible mark on the universal sounds of reggae.

CPR’s objective is to get people involved and excited about learning more about what women have done in reggae music. As such CPR will conduct a social media education campaign, comprised of exhibits, music, challenges and trivia games.

The tribute includes Guess Who? Where a picture is presented and patrons are invited to guess who the artist is; Read about It, where biographical information is shared; and Did you know? Where trivia and mind teasers are shared. There is also Jam Sessions! Where music and videos of some of reggae music’s most notable female artist are played and enjoyed.

The works and deeds of women globally are innumerable as she cradles the world in her heart, mind and womb. This project, which seeks to honor her positive contributions, is but a token of our appreciation. The General Assembly of the UN on the first International Women's Day of March 8, 1911 over 100 years ago said, International Women's Day is “To recognize the fact that securing peace and social progress and the full enjoyment of human rights and fundamental freedoms require the active participation, equality and development of women; and to acknowledge the contribution of women to the strengthening of international peace and security.”

The Women in Reggae tribute is a warm-up session, a prelude to the campaign's big finale which flows over into April, when CPR celebrates the feminine energy in reggae with a star studded line-up at the International Women of Reggae concert, April 25, 2015 at the Brooklyn Center for the Performing arts at Brooklyn College.

Join with CPR in honoring and celebrating Women in Reggae.
