Visual artist Carrie Mae Weems and three featured singers offer a provocative performance of music, song, text, spoken word, and video projection that explores this historical moment.


Focused on social justice, acclaimed visual artist Carrie Mae Weems offers Grace Notes: Reflections for Now, a provocative performance of music, song, text, spoken word, and video projection that explores this modern historical moment. The performance features a cast of talented artists from wide disciplines, including music director and composer Craig Harris; singers Eisa DavisAlicia Moran Hall, and Imani Uzuri; poets Aja Monet, Carl Hancock Rux, and Francesca Harper; and musicians Yayaoi Ikawa, Calvin Jones, and Curtis Nowosad.

This engagement is part of JFKC: A Centennial Celebration of John F. Kennedy, the Kennedy Center's yearlong programming initiative marking the 100th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's birth and legacy, inspired by five ideals frequently attributed to America's 35th President: Courage, Freedom, Justice, Service, and Gratitude.
