A concert in recognition of Americans who have faced prejudice and adversity to American freedoms and liberties based on their ethnicity or sexual preference. The concert will feature "Afro-American Fragments" which sets the poetry of Langston Hughes to a powerful musical soundscape and Henry Cowell's Symphony no. 2 which was written while Cowell was serving time in San Quentin state prision on "morals" charges for having a same sex relationship. It will be held in the Great Hall at Gallagher Bluedorn.
Winner of both the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival, “God Grew Tired Of Us” explores the indomitable spirit of three ‘Lost Boys’ from the Sudan who leave their homeland, triumph over seemingly insurmountable adversities and move to America, where they build active and fulfilling new lives but remain deeply committed to helping the friends and family they have left behind.
Orphaned by a tumultuous civil war and traveling barefoot across the sub-Saharan desert, John Bul Dau, Daniel Abol Pach and Panther Blor were among the 25,000 ‘Lost Boys’ (ages 3 to 13) who fled villages, formed surrogate families and sought refuge from famine, disease, wild animals and attacks from rebel soldiers. Named by a journalist after Peter Pan’s posse of orphans who protected and provided for each other, the “Lost Boys” traveled together for five years and against all odds crossed into the UN’s refugee camp in Kakuma, Kenya. A journey’s end for some, it was only the beginning for John, Daniel and Panther, who along with 3,800 other young survivors, were selected to re-settle in the United States.
