In collaboration with faery and folktale artist Brian Froud, Jim Henson ventured into an entirely new world with the production of The Dark Crystal (1982). The world of Thra launches viewers into lush bioluminescent forests, dank dungeons, and airy throne rooms brimming with fantastical details. Look closer and explore some of the tools and belongings used by the many characters of Thra, and create your own prop right at home. The program is suitable for all ages, including adults.
Priestess and conjurewoman Toya Smith will trace the everyday cultural aspects of African Americans, exploring how those aspects are influenced by traditional African cultures brought over by ancestors. She will discuss how those aspects of culture are, in fact, ancestor veneration and a maintained belief in and participation in an African-based spirituality. Her talk will cover Black church music, tradition, and superstition.
