THE FREDERICK DOUGLASS RESOURCE CENTER
36 King Street
The Frederick Douglass Resource Center will screen the Nicholle La Vann documentary “110 Morningside” from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30p.m. The documentary is based on the life of poet, teacher, author and founding member of The Last Poets, Abiodun Oyewole.
This two-day program is an extension of the center’s exhibit entitled The Price of Freedom Is Death: Black Aesthetic Art Show 2013, which opened on May 18, 2013, and focused on the critical aspects of and personalities in the Black Arts Movement of the 60s and 70s.
Abiodun Oyewole is scheduled to attend the film screening and will also participate in the Rochester Black Arts Council’s (RBAC) closing program scheduled for the 29th, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., The Black Aesthetic: The Search for Self in the 21st Century.
This is an extraordinary opportunity to meet and greet one of the pioneers/icons of the Spoken Work/Hip-Hop genre, and glean from his over 40 years of experience in the arts arena.
Admission is $15 for both days, or $10 each if purchased separately.
The Frederick Douglass Resource Center is committed to articulating the life and legacy of Frederick Douglass and African American heritage and culture. Through culturally conscious, educational programming, we will effect positive change as it relates to self-image and esteem, community, economic viability and true social justice. With Frederick Douglass serving as our guide, we endeavor to continue the legacy of promoting excellence in education and service to the commUNITY.
