Turning “Crowds into Choirs” to Build Joy and Cultural Connection

Spark Talk
Mind, Body, Soul

Put your voice, body, and entire being into the work of reconnecting with the rhythmic, call-and-response griot traditions that celebrate liberation, justice, and freedom, particularly from institutional and systemic oppression. Join Jonathan Lykes as he uses freedom music from the Movement4BlackLives to tap into the healing, joy, and spirit work of our time, embodying the liberated world we aspire to as a collective compass for the future for which we fight.
