Amen Black Nativity is a curated celebration of Langston Hughes’ Black Nativity: A Gospel Song-Play” originally produced in 1961, with a focus on Choreographer Mike Malone’s version of the play produced by Duke Ellington School of the Arts.
One of my current projects is producing the Amen Black Nativity blog as part the immersive experience that is Duke Ellington School of the Arts, all youth stage production of Black Nativity!
Visit the blog to read stories, view short documentaries, and reflections from students about the meaning behind Black Nativity, and what it means to be “gifted” at Ellington.
Follow updates about the play online @DukeEllingtonDC !
My afternoon was well spent at @AffinityLab with my @StoryCodeDC co-organizer @feliciapride, and interactive media artist @CherylOpletayev of @SocialSamba today for our second #StoryCodeDC event, an immersive lab for storytellers exploring web coding in narratives. Magic happens when story meets code! Made evident by our participants in only a few short hours! Special thanks to my #LMC #WWDK students who came through to lend our storytellers a helping hand with the technology on a Saturday! An afternoon filled with great collaboration and imaginative uses of technology! #storycodedc
