Village Voices : Notes from the Griot

Village Voices is a celebration of artistic contributions from African-Americans through dance, music, poetry and art! Because of the importance of celebrating these historical contributions, this reprise of Village Voices is sure to leave you inspired!

The artistic director of Village Voices, Joshua A. Thompson, has created this program with the assistance of local artists who currently perform works of African-American artists. Amassing a legion of vocalists, musicians, composers, poets, visual artists and an African dance troupe, Mr. Thompson has enlisted an up and coming playwright to construct a single narrative that weaves biographical/historical information with the masterworks of selected artists.

There will be two performances on February 23rd:
2pm matinee ($15 general admission, parties of 10 or more will receive discounted tickets of $10 each)

7pm ($25)
