For this special Word Rapport program, the Schomburg offers a multimedia extravaganza to celebrate the legendary Pearl Primus. Youth dancers from the Harlem School of the Arts will open the evening with a performance of Primus’s signature work, “Bushasche, War Dance, A Dance for Peace.” After the Harlem School of the Arts performance, Peggy and Murray Schwartz will join the audience in conversation about their phenomenal work, The Dance Claimed Me: A Biography of Pearl Primus, much of which was researched at the Schomburg. Moderated by Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, of Urban Bush Woman.
