Join us Friday March 6th from 6-8pm for Dying While Black & Brown, a dance performance about capital punishment performed by the Zaccho Dance Theatre from San Francisco. A post-performance discussion will feature Diann Rust-Tierney, Executive Director of the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty.
First commissioned by the San Francisco Equal Justice Society, Dying While Black and Brown focuses on capital punishment and the disproportionate numbers of incarcerated people of color. The piece was created by Zaccho Dance Theatre’s Artistic Director Joanna Haigood in collaboration with renowned jazz composer Marcus Shelby. It was created in response to the Equal Justice Society’s campaign to restore 14th Amendment protections for victims of discrimination, including those on death row.
