Throughout the series of summer exhibitions focused on the civil rights movement, three original performances by local and regional performing artists will respond to the disturbances and subsequent occupation in Wilmington. These interdisciplinary performances and unique collaborations will combine music, visual arts, dance, and storytelling to interpret, give context, and call us to action around the events that shaped our city and nation.  

Two performances pair together artists who work in different disciplines. Collaborations include musician Jea P. Street Jr. with storyteller TAHIRA, and dancer Ashley S. K. Davis with visual artist Terrance Vann. A third performance will include an 11-day residency by performance artist Jaamil Kosoko
