In Honor of Black History Month, on February 27, 4-5:30 pm The AntiRacisim Institute presents in person and online:
STILL, WE RISE, a theatrical event produced by the La Jolla Theatre Ensemble and Common Ground Theatre.
A Theatrical Event (In Person and Broadcast Live)
Most of us vividly remember the electrifying performance of young Black poet Amanda Gorman at the 2020 Inauguration. Here are a few of her powerful lines from “The Hill We Climb”:
- … being American is more than a pride we inherit,
It’s the past we step into
And how we repair it …
- The new dawn blooms as we free it
For there is always light,
If only we’re brave enough to see it-
If only we’re brave enough to be it.
Still, We Rise shares the works of African-American poets Amanda Gorman, Langston Hughes, and Maya Angelou, performed by Yolanda Franklin and Ernie McCray, and featuring the Music of the Rob Thorsen Trio.
It will be a live in-person event, also live-streamed and recorded for future purposes.
