Cafecito Friday with Cassandra Harris-Lockwood

Born in Washington, DC in '51, Cassandra was educated in local schools and graduated from high school in 1969. Matriculating into Kirkland three weeks after Woodstock, Cassandra left school after the first semester returning a year later. Cassandra has had a lifelong involvement in activism beginning with student government in grade school through to the Anti-War Movement and the Women's Movement in college. Cassandra was one of the founders of the Hamilton Womyn's Center, originally the Kirkland Women's Center. Covering a wide range of majors in her four years, Cassandra finished with a degree in Art and Dance, having won scholarships at the Alvin Ailey Dance Studio, the Dance Theatre of Harlem and the George Faison School in NYC.

After finishing at Kirkland she lived in the East Village of NYC for five years. Her first job was Production Assistant for the Tony Award winning musical Raisin. She continued to work in production for two other hit Broadway shows, Bubbling Brown Sugar and the Wiz. Cassandra's time spent in NYC was full of artistic endeavors including acting, writing, music, healing, martial arts. She returned to the Utica area in 1979 to marry Stephen Lockwood and has since dedicated her adult life to work for the betterment of the poor and needy of the Utica area.
