This care session was offered in conjunction with “Simone Leigh: The Waiting Room.” Led by Malik K. Bellamy, each twenty-minute massage session offered between 2 and 4 p.m. will consist of compression, tapotement, and a hand-and-foot massage incorporating gentle stretching. The goal of these sessions was to stimulate circulation and increase range of motion, preparing you for the rest of your day.
Bellamy attended Helma Institute of Massage Therapy and received his professional massage therapist certificate in 2006. His mother, Suzanne Bellamy, is a former member of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense.
All care sessions were open to the public free of charge and will take place on the Fifth Floor of the Museum.
