Oceans to Sail Showcase with Saul Williams
"Oceans to Sail" Showcase Featuring Saul Williams and Special Guests Khari McClelland and Dawn Pemberton, Eugene Bae, and Kimmortal
(8 pm at Wise Hall; $25 Advance; $30 Door)
Saul Williams is no stranger to conversations that permeate the collective minds of the diaspora. Reparations are within reach and he has a list of demands waiting to unravel from the tip of his revolutionary tongue. Bolstered by the work of local activists and artists Kimmortal, Eugene Bae, Khari McClelland and Dawn Pemberton, Williams takes to the stage to gather workers for the resistance that is at our doorsteps.
"Williams has been breaking ground since his debut album, Amethyst Rock Star, was released in 2001. After gaining global fame for his poetry and writings at the turn of the century, Williams has performed in over 30 countries and read in over 300 universities, with invitations that have spanned from the White House, the Sydney Opera House, Lincoln Center, The Louvre, The Getty Center, Queen Elizabeth Hall, to countless villages, townships, community centers, and prisons across the world. We are honoured to host him as one of our performers and facilitators in this years festival." (saulwilliams.com)
