Friday, Nov 30, 8pm
Harold Washington Cultural Center
4701 S Martin Luther King Dr, Chicago
Clips from South Side Home Movies will be featured as part of a live performance by South Side musician and poet Jamila Woods.
Woods will perform the songs and poetry of her 2016 debut album HEAVN, with scenes from South Side Home Movies playing in the background. Accompanied by strings, a choir, a DJ, poets, dancers and visual artists, Woods believes “this performance will encapsulate the album's thoughts, emotions and sounds better than any other. It will also encompass the broad spectrum of incredible art emanating from Chicago, proving that no matter the obstacles, you can create heaven in your community.”
Thanks to the Alsup-Smith, Frazier, McClelland, Merrifield, Patton, Pitts, Reed and Roberson families for sharing your home movies! #homemoviesareourhistory
