Step Afrika! Presents Migration at The Phillips Collection Sept 18

The Phillips Collection is hosting a panel discussion and performance of Step Afrika! with excerpts from The Migration: Reflections on Jacob Lawrence September 18th at 2:00 pm.

For this performance, the dance company blends body percussion, choreography, spoken word, projected images of Lawrence’s panels, and music to chart the Great Migration of African Americans from the rural South to the urban North more than a century ago. The preview performance comes after a discussion with creative leaders from Step Afrika!, The Phillips Collection, and Washington Performing Arts.

The Phillips Collection is located at 1600 21st Street NW.
