Black Cultural Center's Cultural Arts Festival on Friday

The Black Cultural Center at 7 p.m. on Friday (Dec. 1) will present its fall Cultural Arts Festival in Stewart Center's Loeb Playhouse.

Tickets for the 7 p.m. cultural arts show, titled "Holding Space When Being Erased," are $7 for the public and $5 for students, and are available at the box office in Stewart Center or at 765-494-3933.

The BCC's Performing Arts Ensembles will celebrate the culture and art of New Orleans, the theme of the center's Fall Cultural Arts Series. The show was developed from research acquired during the fall semester.

The Performing Arts Ensembles include Black Thought Collective, Haraka Writers, New Directional Players, Black Voices of Inspiration, the Gordon Parks Visual Arts Ensemble and the Jahari Dance Troupe.

James Dekle, artist in residence for the cultural center, said, “The emotional journey inherent in exploring New Orleans especially post-Katrina is a rich, layered experience and we plan to take the audience on a transcendent journey which we hope will leave them with a fuller understanding of this great city.”
