Earlier this month at the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, Ailey performed Jamar Roberts’ Ode to those impacted by gun violence. The Washington Post raved “Ode feels like another revelation for Ailey” and "Ailey is doing what few major dance organizations do: It is keeping pace with the times, and the conversation." With this special event at the Marquee Club, Atlantans are invited to join in the conversation.

Associate Artistic Director Matthew Rushing and dancer and Resident Choreographer Jamar Roberts join in a conversation centered around Mr. Roberts’ new work Ode, a tribute to the innocent victims of gun violence. Moderated by WABE’s Rose Scott.
