Description: The award-winning ensemble UNIVERSES is known for breaking the bounds of traditional theater, fusing poetry, jazz, hip hop and Southern blues to create powerful performance experiences for diverse audiences. The Party People Salon is a unique, participatory event reflecting the revolutionary spirit of the Black Panthers and Young Lords Movements of the 1960s-1970s.
During the Salon, performance is interspersed with conversations among veteran Panthers and Lords, Black Panther Ericka Huggins and Mickey Melendez of Young Lords. They share their moving, personal stories of everyday women and men who became leaders and activists. The Party People Salon offers a rare opportunity to discover what has become of these inspiring and at times controversial citizens whose movement to make change still reverberates today.
