WALKING – TALKING – SINGING – SWINGING THE BLUES
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2019
The Safe Walks to Parks Finale. The last of our Public Art Series for the fall.
Featuring Art, Blues Music, Dancing and fun for the entire family!
Hayti implemented a Safe Routes to Parks Activating Communities Program earlier this year. The project, Reconnecting Hayti with the Heart of Durham, seeks to increase movement and improve health for our community through installing a safe, accessible and artistic route between Hayti and Black Wall Street Garden. Phase one of the project ends at Hayti with a ceremonial walk from the patio into the Center. Project members will talk about next steps for the project.
Charles Ward and his blues band, Shugr & Spyce Bluesband, will take the stage in Hayti’s historic Performance Hall, singing and swinging their brand of Piedmont blues music. Blues dancers from RDU Blues will teach the “Piedmont Triple,” a blues dance created for Piedmont blues music.
Come on out and MOVE SOMETHING as we walk, talk, sing and swing the blues! This is a community event. Food and beverages will be available.
