Translated and directed, and facilitated by Bryan Doerries Music composed and conducted by Dr. Philip Woodmore Co-facilitated by De-Andrea Blaylock Johnson Featuring performances by Tracie Thoms, Jason Isaacs, De-Rance Blaylock, Duane Foster, Willie Woodmore, Nyasha Hatendi, Marjolaine Goldsmith, Jumaane Williams, and The Antigone in Ferguson Choir.The event Zoom link will be distributed and available to registered attendees starting 2 days prior to the event.Register here at this link. + <a href="http://aifoctober2.eventbrite.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">aifoctober2.eventbrite.com</a> Campus Events
