The Journey: Civil Rights
May 6, 2023 at 7 PM
Concept & Creation by Destiny Coleman
The Journey: Civil Rights will feature performances by the Columbus Cultural Orchestra, Columbus Dance Theatre, Milton Ruffin Gospel Chorale, and Tapestry Performing Arts Company. Steeped in African-American history and the struggle for equal rights, yet universal in its emotional and musical appeal, this unique program presents a rich body of work passed down through generations and communities, and deeply relevant to our present day. The Journey: Civil Rights aims to share the African-American experience with audiences of all ages, races, religions, and backgrounds.
In November 2023, Converging Arts Columbus was selected as the winner of the Greater Columbus Arts Council’s Columbus Makes Art Excellence Award for our production of The Journey: Civil Rights, concept and creation by Destiny Coleman.
