Due to overwhelming public demand, Overture with the Arts presents “Unpacking the N-Word”; a virtual presentation that explores the origins and evolution of the N-Word. Join us for an edu-tainment presentation that combines slam poetry, stand-up comedy, and a panel discussion with experts. Guests will learn to put one of the most loaded words in the English language into proper historical context. This event will include a live, virtual presentation from award-winning professional actor, writer, director and producer Omari Newton, followed by a panel discussion with experts:
This virtual presentation will serve as a fundraiser for OWTA so that we can continue our work empowering today's youth and tomorrow's change-makers by bringing arts, culture, and education to the community.
