*DIGITAL* The Opulence of Integrity: Dance and Muhammad Ali
October 7, 2020
Christal Brown’s original dance piece “The Opulence of Integrity” was inspired by the public life and inner searching of Muhammad Ali, boxing’s outspoken superstar. Brown, associate professor of Dance at Middlebury College, will discuss the making of the work and its relevance to our present moment.
Brown dedicates the work to her father, brother, and uncle who, “fought but did not win” and to her son “whose battle now begins.” Brown goes on to say, “To be born, branded by history, burdened by responsibility, and inspired towards greatness requires a committed heart and an opulence of integrity.”Register to attend this free event
