Counterpoint Project: In 2018, Patrick Earl Hammie and Endalyn T. Outlaw debuted Counterpoint Project
at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in New York City. This project built on their public
conversation on disciplinary mastery, and provided space for them to partner with six cross-generational
ballerinas, a clothing designer, a documentarian, and MoBBallet to develop artwork, performances, a
panel discussion, and a web archive that honors the ongoing contributions of Black dancers and artists,
and inspires the curiosity in and routes for young people in their creative pursuits. Post-pandemic, they
plan to travel the project to London and Brazil.
