Sweet Honey in the Rock® is an American three-time Grammy Award–nominated troupe who express their history as Black women through song, dance, and sign language. Originally a four-person ensemble, the group has expanded to five-part harmonies, with a sixth member acting as a sign-language interpreter. Founded in Washington, D.C., in 1973 by Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon as part of the D.C. Black Repertory Theater Company with Carol Maillard, Louise Robinson and Mie, Sweet Honey in the Rock has evolved into an international ambassador of a cappella music. The group was founded on the missions of empowerment, education, and entertainment, and has created a deep catalog of beloved socially conscious music rooted in African-American history and culture, always aspiring to make the world a better place for all.
