The objective of theKEEPERS is to create healthy, nourishing spaces for girls and womxn on the microphone, the stage, the ground. Our collective insists upon providing the missing resources for claiming our freedom (as if trespassers) in houses our mother's built.
We are a global Black womxn-led collective of artists, activists, and scholars. We map, document, archive, and center the vast world of womxn/femme artistry throughout Hip Hop music and culture (& beyond).
We do the work and make it available to the public for free.

theKEEPERS must be supported with all our energy and zest because they preserve great artistic and prophetic women's voices in our rich past and present.
