Details

Co-Moderated by Wake Up With WURD Host, Solomon Jones, Apollo Uptown Hall: Movement Required is motivated by the themes from the Apollo and Opera Philadelphia’s October 2017 opera, We Shall Not Be Moved. This community conversation will feature an excerpt of the award-winning documentary Let the Fire Burn, which covers one of the most tumultuous (and largely forgotten) clashes between government and citizens in modern American history. We’ll focus on some of today’s problems in Urban America the film addresses, particularly law enforcement and community relations and the lack of youth and family services. What can we do within our communities? What can New Yorkers learn from Philadelphia initiatives, and vice-versa? And can the arts help?
