Join us on Sunday for Part 1: A Conversation Led by DJ Duane Powell for the program series: Objects of Care: Material Memorial for Tamir Rice.
Music historian and DJ, Duane Powell, will discuss the genesis of Frankie Knuckles in Chicago, the discrimination that sparked a dance revolution, and how the Frankie Knuckles vinyl collection can serve as inspiration for a new generation of conversations about race, justice and freedom.
