CAC Presents red, black & GREEN: a blues

red, black & GREEN: a blues(rbGb) is a moving hybrid work that brings the stories and voices of Black America into the center of a timely conversation about race, class, culture and the environment. Award-winning performance artist, educator and essayist Marc Bamuthi Joseph uses his work to create opportunities to engage the local community and stimulate social change. He joins us, along with Dr. Victor Garcia, founding director of Trauma Services of Children’s Hospital and founder of CoreChange, to discuss rbGb and the power of art to create positive change in a community.

Presented by the Contemporary Arts Center, red, black & GREEN: a blues will have two performances, May 30 and 31, at the Aronoff Center for the Arts. Marc Bamuthi Joseph will also lead a free community discussionat the Cincinnati Zoo on Saturday from 10 to 11:30 on what sustains LIFE I Avondale.
