Presented by Verbal Gumbo, the ROUX is base for GUMBO. If we are not allowing the youth to create their stories, the roux, then we are missing a key ingredient to our pot of universal gumbo. The ROUX is the foundation and this foundation is a safe space for youth to share their stories freely without judgment or criticism and feel love & support from their friends, family and community.
Birthed in Omaha, Nebraska, in 2013, The Roux is youth fueled and run. Each month the show will expose young people to artistic gems spaces in North Omaha while giving them the support of caring adults, mentors, teachers who every month will share tips on writing, preforming and life.
