Live performances, storytelling, and an art exhibit celebrate the journeys and achievements of five Indianapolis African American women. Centered on the work of poet Mari Evans, enjoy traditional and contemporary versions of "Celebrations” and "I am a Black Woman" performed by locals Ophelia Wellington, founder of Freetown Village, and Tony Styxx, spoken-word poet.

These themes will be revisited in short segments as we share the stories of five Indianapolis African American women who have nurtured young people and adults alike for many years: poet Mari Evans, founder of iibada Dance Company Sabra Logan, founder of Metropolitan Youth Orchestra Betty Perry, Ophelia Wellington, and visual artist Carol White.

Find joy and beauty as we explore journeys through visual art, the spoken-word, and music and dance performance. We will conclude with an opportunity for the audience to engage in storytelling as we learn how to share our individual journeys with one another.
