Healing Vibrations with Jordan Hamilton

Created by AK Wright, 2021

Kitchen conversations about the relationship between art, healing, and Black liberation. Call to Remember is a shared offering of improvisation, experimentation, and conjuring exploring Black pedagogy, artistry, and activism in dance. Invoking the elements of Call To Remember, Leslie Parker and AK Wright bring forth individuals over a meal to have robust conversations about their engagement with CTR, how we are engaging care, improvisation, and communal connections in current, beyond, and past moments. In this episode, Leslie and AK talk with collaborator Jordan Hamilton on his work with Call To Remember, healing lineages, and how he's bringing the healing vibes.
