Dance Matters presents: Coming to Monuments

February 25, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST


Join us during Black History Month for a free evening with Charleston-based dance company, Dance Matters, who will perform contemporary dance pieces inspired by the recent and ongoing controversies across the South related to Confederate monuments. The work is set to music by Charleston poet laureate Marcus Amaker and presents educational vignettes from local history — from the Reconstruction Era through the integration battles of the Civil Rights Movement — weaving in audio recordings and other primary sources. The performance will be followed by a discussion with civil rights icon Dr. Millicent Brown and poet laureate of Charleston Marcus Amaker, moderated by historian Damon Fordham.
