Resurrected Life is proud to present for the first time, LV MAAFA SUITE, a choreographed musical that tells the story of the Transatlantic slave trade. Please join us to attend this opportunity to see a glimpse through time, and honor our black ancestors and celebrate the strength of spirit and the richness of heritage. Join us as we give voice to the enslaved, journey through the middle passage, shine light on the co-conspirators of the institution of slavery, and offer upliftment to our present day, where freedom is still out of reach for many. Our collective liberation is tied together. Written by Nehprii Amenii; directed by Kymbali Craig.
