THE MAN IS THE MUSIC draws us into Atlanta-based artist and musician Lonnie Holley's imaginative and captivating world. While in I Snuck Off the Slave Ship Lonnie Holley, a "self-taught African American artist" and dimensional traveler, attempts to sneak off the slave ship America. This screening is in collaboration with Duke Performances as part of Music Maker 25 (https://dukeperformances.duke.edu/event-category/music-maker-25/), a weeklong music series and exhibition in downtown Durham celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Music Maker Relief Foundation.
