A Meditation on Healing
Nationally recognized author, performer and Poet Laureate of Albuquerque (2012-2014), Bellamy will perform at 7:30. An on- air host for the New Mexico PBS show ¡COLORES!, Bellamy’s multimedia performance will address the intersection of young Black male bodies and institutional racism/violence. He responds in poetic verse to video of a talking circle with young Black men less than two days after the Charleston Massacre. His performance will also include Acapella Hip-Hop poetry/theater pieces.
This event coincides with “The Music and The Muse: Art by Reginald Gammon” Opening Reception at the African American Performing Arts Center Gallery (across the hall from the auditorium)
