About the event
On April 23, 2023, Fluidity, along with the Ohio Innocence Project (OIP), will present a concert intended to bring awareness to inhumane, wrongful deaths and reclaim the humanity of seven black men through Joel Thompson’s Seven Last Words of the Unarmed, which will be inlaid with the sacred music of Faure’s Requiem. The performance will conclude with Shelton Ridge Love’s beautiful arrangement of We Shall Overcome. Through these pieces, Fluidity will seek to convey peace and hope in the midst of tragedy.
Before the performance, a select group of recently exonerated community members will speak. They will inform and educate the audience of OIP’s impact in their lives and in our community. A portion of the funds raised from this event will aid in the rehabilitation and support of recently released felons in their paths to rejoin society.
