Global South Center Presents William Parker Concert & Reading at Pratt Manhattan
Please join us for a concert performance by world-renowned bassist William Parker who will be leading his band, Universal Tonality, at the Pratt Manhattan gallery. Parker is a composer, writer, activist, and educator who has performed and taught all around the globe. I will open the event with a reading from my forthcoming biography of Parker, “Universal Tonality: The Life and Music of William Parker” out on Duke University Press in Fall 2020.
The performance and reading are in conjunction with the exhibit, Talking to Action: Art, Pedagogy, and Activism in the Americas, curated by Bill Kelley, Jr.
