Spoken Word Poetry and Dance Performance Honors Ahmaud Arbery

Support Provided By

Southland Sessions Presents: From high school operas and drive-thru art exhibitions to Chicano comedies and underground DJ sets — we are showcasing the vibrancy of arts and culture across our city today.

Named after Ahmaud Arbery, who was persecuted by several white men while jogging, "Until We Win - Run with Ahmaud" is an artists' response to the injustices faced by Black people who are brutalized for existing. It is a song for solidarity and a poem to remember #AhmaudArbery #BreonnaTaylor #GeorgeFloyd #SeanReed #NinaPop and more so that we never forget.
