Step Afrika! presents The Migration

Panel Discussion and Performance

September 18, 2016, 2 pm

Step Afrika! performs excerpts from The Migration: Reflections on Jacob Lawrence. For this performance, the dance company blends body percussion, choreography, spoken word, projected images of Lawrence’s panels, and music to chart the Great Migration of African Americans from the rural South to the urban North more than a century ago. The preview performance comes after a discussion with creative leaders from Step Afrika!, The Phillips Collection, and Washington Performing Arts.

In partnership with Step Afrika! and Washington Performing Arts.
