“Village Voices,” a Unity Project program, is a live and interactive artistic experience that showcases musicians, dancers and artists telling stories and highlighting the contributions of African-Americans in the arts.
The artistic director of “Village Voices,” Joshua A. Thompson, has created this program with the assistance of local artists who currently perform works of African‐Americans. Amassing a cadre of talented and inspired vocalists, musicians, composers, poets, visual artists and an African dance troupe, Mr. Thompson has enlisted an up and coming playwright to construct a single narrative that weaves biographical/historical information with the masterworks of selected artists.
A Unity Project Initiative
The mission of the Unity Project is to build respect and understanding between various communities, especially the black and Jewish communities, through dialogue and the arts. Partners include JCC, the Indianapolis Urban League, the Efroymson Family Fund and the Jewish Community Relations Council.
