About Colors of Rhythm

Colors of Rhythm is an annual performance that began as a constructive protest against what the curriculum and academic departments at Oberlin do not cover. By addressing issues such as lack of resources for and the recognition, valuing, visibility of certain cultural dance forms by the mainstream culture on campus, CoR is a form of cultural activism and protest. CoR is an important moment for students of color to honor and celebrate their culture, as well as a moment for the dominant campus culture to demonstrate support. This year we will be celebrating Colors of Rhythm's 18th annual show.

This event is open to everyone and all proceeds go to the Oberlin Community Youth Scholarship Fund.
