Greenwood - Donald Byrd's fifth Ailey commission draws on the Company's theatrical roots and legacy of addressing social injustice. The work's title references a 1921 tragedy that happened in Tulsa, Oklahoma's segregated Greenwood District. At the time, it was one of the country's most affluent African American communities, known as "Black Wall Street." On May 30, 1921, an incident occurred in the elevator of a Greenwood office building; nobody truly knows what happened, but a young Black man was arrested for attempted assault on a White teenaged girl. The next day, a newspaper report about the arrest incited an armed White mob, and things quickly escalated. click here

Martin Luther King Jr.'s 'Letter from Birmingham Jail' - In April 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. was jailed in Birmingham, Alabama, after he defied a state court's injunction and led a march of black protesters without a permit, urging an Easter boycott of white-owned stores. A statement published in The Birmingham News, written by eight moderate white clergymen, criticized the march and other demonstrations. This prompted King to write a lengthy response, begun in the margins of the newspaper. He smuggled it out with the help of his lawyer, and the nearly 7,000 words were transcribed. The eloquent call for "constructive, nonviolent tension" to force an end to unjust laws became a landmark document of the civil-rights movement. click here

From Here: A New Musical - Equality Florida, Florida's largest LGBTQ organization, will present a full-length video presentation of From Here, a new musical, as part of the annual #HonorThemWithAction campaign. FROM HERE a??(Book/Music/Lyrics by Donald a??Rupea??, Arrangements and Orchestrations by a??Jason M.Baileya??) begins with Daniel (Blake Aburn), a 30-something gaya?? man living in Orlando. Daniel is navigating a difficult relationship with his mother (Sarah Lee Dobbs) and his interminable search for love (in mostly the wrong places). In the first act, he loses one love (Peter Heid) for another (Erick Perafan). Daniel is funny, nerdy, and has a tight-knit group of friends who are his chosen family. Set in Orlando in 2016, the musical takes an emotional turn as the characters learn of the tragic shooting at Pulse Nightclub, a place which was a centerpiece of their formative years. These moments change the way that Daniel, and those around him, see the world. The show ends with a wiser, more mature, more hopeful Daniel. "We're all from here," he says, realizing how much truly ties us together. click here
