Join local dancer, choreographer, and activist Tony C. Johnson, as well as dancers and vocalist Shanna Adams, for a special showing of Johnson’s “Embodying History Through Movement” project. The project uses movement as a reflection on the journey of slaves and people of the civil rights movement, accompanied by spirituals and music used during that time in history.
The performance will be followed by a discussion with dancers and Thomas DeFrantz, professor of African & African American Studies at Duke.
This event is sponsored by the Student Human Rights Fellows of the Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics.
