A FREE EVENT HONORING TWO MAJOR FIGURES IN BLACK DANCE AND ARTS.

Wednesday, December 6, 7 pm
John Hancock Hall, 180 Berkeley Street, Boston

In a turbulent 1968, Celebrity Series of Boston took a chance with a one-night engagement of a dynamic African-American dance company. Choreographer Alvin Ailey’s mission to reflect and promote African-American traditions and art-making took hold in Boston that night. Across town that year, Boston arts educator and social activist Elma Lewis founded the National Center of Afro-American Artists to enhance appreciation for black art forms and their practitioners. It remains the largest independent Black cultural arts institution in New England.

Join us for a FREE event celebrating these groundbreaking cultural leaders in a lively discussion with their friends, colleagues, and some of today’s artists inspired by their work.

FEATURING:

JUDITH JAMISON, Artistic Director Emerita for the Ailey Company

E. BARRY GAITHER, Director of the Museum of the National Center of Afro-American Artists
