DANCING AT DUNBAR September 6th (LA)

The Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre will perform a site specific dance celebrating Los Angeles' legendary Dunbar Hotel at the hotel. Based on "Life's Tragedy and Sympathy," two poems by Paul Laurence Dunbar. During the segregated era when African-Americans were not allowed to stay at major hotels, it became the hangout for such legends as Langston Hughes, Paul Robeson, Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, and Lena Horne. It hosted the first NAACP national convention in the western US. 

Tickets can be bought here.

A "Tip of the Backward-wearing Kangol" to David Mack for bringing this to our attention.
