“We hope to establish this as a free annual event for our audience, the church’s congregation, and the larger community,” said THPAC Executive Chairman Alex Smith, Jr. “The program will inform the public of and celebrate the significant contributions of African Americans through music, dance, and the spoken word. We are committed to the remembrance of our history and the uplift of African Americans. By reaching back through this program, we can envision and grasp a healing future for our community and all of humanity.”

The program will include bible-themed works by choreographer Walter Rutledge, featuring dancers Ezra Swift and Cortney Taylor Key. The works will include a solo set to 2 Chronicles and extend the work with another selection from Hebrew 11, narrated by theater legend James Earl Jones. Two additional sections, a solo for Key and a new duet for the pair, will also be offered.
