We’ve Come this Far by Faith: Songs from the Black Experience

May 22 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Please join us for We’ve Come this Far by Faith: Songs from the Black Experience, an in-person lecture and performance featuring Dr. Terence Elliott and the Nymani Music ensemble, on Sunday, May 22nd, at 3:00 – 4:30 pm, at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church (at Van Ness/Clay) in San Francisco. Masks are required and there is a suggested donation of $20. Unfortunately, it will NOT be live-streamed.

The event is being sponsored by the Racial Justice Task Force of Old First Presbyterian Church, together with Calvary Presbyterian Church, Seventh Avenue Presbyterian Church and the Grace & Restoration Project of the West Bay Antiracism Group.

Dr. Terence Elliott, author of “Spirit, Rhythm, and Story: Community Building and Healing Through Song”, and his band Nymani Music, will be taking participants on a journey through the history of the African-American experience in music. Dr. Elliott, a professor of music and African-American history, has taught and performed both in the Bay Area and in Ghana for over 35 years. He uses music to bring communities together and find commonality of purpose. Learn more and listen to a sampling of their music here – https://nymanimusic.bandzoogle.com/

 

Public transit access on Muni lines #49 and #1 serves St. Luke’s and paid public parking is available a block away at Old First Garage at Sacramento/Polk streets.
