ROOTS REVIVAL REVISITED
Join the New Mexico Black History Organizing Committee (NMBHOC) this February in celebrating Black History Month. The festivities start with Roots Revival Revisited, a high energy play that highlights the contributions, triumphs, and accolades of African Americans throughout the years. Marcus Garvey said that a people who lack the knowledge of their past history, origins and culture are like a tree without roots.
Using theater and music as a tool, Roots Revisited, will educate audiences of all ages about the history of blacks in America. While this presentation is educational and historical in nature, it is also entertaining. This is a multi-generational cast with many students from the area; ranging in age from 8-18. These students, who are working towards an important community performance, learn about how music and the arts have been used in every aspect of the black experience to entertain, to heal, to resolve conflict and to express joy and resilience.
Roots Revival Revisited, written by Cathryn McGill will feature original music and choreography from a variety of local artists.
