In Perpetual Flight: The Migration of the Black Body

Tuesday, April 16, 2019 6:30 PM Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture
This one-day event examines the movement of Black bodies in America and the impact that movement has had in the quest for liberation. Utilizing the archives of the Schomburg Center, and using multidisciplinary performance and community dialogue, the National Black Theatre commissions new pieces by theater-makers of African descent to examine the works of James Baldwin, Harriet Powers, Marcus Garvey, Harriet Tubman, and Jacob Lawrence to illuminate the complexities Black people have faced migrating in America.

Part of: Migrations: The Making of America
