Voices of the Diaspora
February 15 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pmFree
The world of black identity spans the globe. What it means to be called “black” around the world can shift, but the impact is visible in the overlapping histories and struggles faced by those people. Through their varied oppression, however, have created the masterful art forms that shaped history and culture. From the oral traditions of teachers or griots to the vibrant jazz styles of the 19th century, or spoken word into hip-hop. Join us for a night of celebration of this global culture. Live performances, spoken word, and a Keynote Speech from local historian and comedian: Vicki Shields. Mega Melanin art collective is drawn with many comparisons from shared history. Melanin innate, millions in strength.
