Dear Friends and Community Members:
I am proud to announce the launch of a new arts collective – HUMANITY PLAY PROJECT. For our inaugural event on Mon Jan 18, we explored the aftermath of the Charleston, SC tragedy in a curated evening of dance, poetry, song and theatre. We joined together to honor those who were lost – to question why it happened – and to offer a forum for community dialogue. #BLACKLIVESMATTER
Thank you to the artists: Jane Bacon, Terrence Colby, Perry Daniel, Acquah Dansoh,Rukhmani K. Desai, Tiwana Floyd, Ace Gibson, Tamarra Graham, Yuko Lee,Rani O’Brien, Jevon Reynolds, Nikki Star, Mirage Thrams and Carolyn Marie Wright.
What an evening! Still processing the love, the artistry, the community we shared in West Los Angeles this evening. So grateful for this experience. To behold a multi-generational, multi-racial, multi-gender dialogue was extraordinary. And on MLK Day! I am hopeful. I am inspired. I am ready to #DoSomething.
Thank you to our sponsor: West LA United Methodist Church.
