MIDLAND, Texas (Big 2/Fox 24) – A local couple is passionate about educating people on the arts of their culture. They bring events to the Permian Basin including dancers. In particular, a Los Angeles dance company called “Contra-Tiempo.”
James and Robbyne Fuller volunteer their time to do that. Robbyne formed a special counsel in Midland 20 years ago. It’s called “the Midland African American Roots Historical Cultural Arts Council Incorporated.”
“We have to be committeed and this committment goes beyond a dollar amount,” said James Fuller, Director of Education for the Midland African American Roots Historical Cultural Arts Council Incorporated.
“I tell people if you want to make change, you have to be the change,” said Robbyne Hocker Fuller, CEO/Founder of the Midland African American Roots Historical Cultural Arts Council Incorporated.
They cover all of the arts and also educate people on artwork, music and even poetry.
We’ll continue to bring you more stories from across the Basin keeping Black History alive. Tune in for a special show called “Hidden History – Honoring Black History.” It airs Sunday, February 16th at noon on Big 2.
