Sunni Patterson will perform at Ithaca College on Monday, February 23.

Singer, poet, emcee, and artist Sunni Patterson will perform in the Clark Lounge this Monday, February 23, at 7:00 p.m. Her performance will kick off the Center for the Study of Culture, Race, and Ethnicity's spring lecture series, "Chaos or Community? MLK and the Politics of Resistance."

"Last year was the 40th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination and we designed the series as a way both to open up critical retrospectives on his own life and struggles and also to engage some of the themes that were central to this work, including theologies of liberation, civil disobedience, and resistance to oppression," says politics professor Asma Barlas of the CSCRE. "I believe Sunni's performance will touch on this last theme."

"Sacred Psalms: Words and Works of Resistance, Love, Struggle, and Victory" is the title of her performance. Don't miss it!
