A History of Black Music in America
The Wheeling YWCA, in collaboration with the Wheeling Arts and Cultural Commission, Wheeling Heritage, and the Wheeling 250 Celebration, celebrated contributions of Black music in America. Starting with Negro Spirituals, it followed the creative road map from jazz to blues, rock and roll to hip-hop and other genres between. We were joined by several incredible local artists, including Candi Gardner, Keith Creighton, James Watts Sr., Ezra John, Lonnette Walker, Reggie Watkins, Laron Carrol, Voices of Praise, Mr. FancyPants, and Van Gilder and hosted by Ron Scott, Jr

This is where I came a few years ago with my two small girls to escape a truly abusive, dangerous situation. I credit the YWCA with giving me my life back
YWCA is a blessing to many women near and far. I personally needed help after being in a violent relationship. The staff were so compassionate and helpful, which helped me heal and get back on my feet. The YWCA is and always will be a temple of healing for women in Wheeling.
The YWCA Wheeling provides critical resources to the Ohio Valley and incredible programming created to empower and engage! Top notch leadership too.
Amazing women doing amazing things!
Very safe. The staff are angels.
