Programmed by Brontez Purnell
Doors 5:00 / DJ 6:30
This performance event explores the work of artists hailing from the diverse dimensions of the African diaspora. Traditional forms honor stolen ancestors and become a springboard for something new: entertainment as a form of community healing and education. The night consists of performances by Rotimi Agbabiaka, Colette Eloi, Ernesto Sopprani, Anne Martine Whitehead, and Jocquese Whitfield. Poetry by Joshua Merchant and KinFolkz and a dedication to the late Ed Mock by Amara Tabor Smith. DJ sets by Adee and Ramdasha.
L@TE is made possible by Ann Hatch/Tin Man Fund, the Thomas J. Long Foundation, and the continued support of the BAM/PFA Trustees. Special thanks to media sponsors East Bay Express and San Francisco Bay Guardian.
