Incorporating elements of dance, story-telling, visual art, and music Mother to Son reflects on a poem that paints the portrait of black life in America and Moore’s 1955 composition by way of inspiration of black spirituals and folk music. This collaboration, which also features dancers Hope Clarke and Ricardo Hartley and artist Alshante Baker shines a light on history, storytelling and activism in the context of the Black narrative of yesterday and today.
