This is a documentary about art, dance, classism, violence, sexuality, the empowerment of women, the church, blackness, roots, tourism and intercultural exchange. The 45-minute documentary will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A with documentary filmmaker Joelle Powe, Professor Emerita Carolyn Cooper and Adjunct Dance Lecturer Maria Hitchins.
