CRITICAL BREAKS Residency Public Sharing

Even Death Will Not Stop Me

By Najee Omar

A spoken word and music hybrid that blends, blurs, and bends the legacy of Black liberation with personal narratives. Accompanied by a full band and live DJ entertainment, Najee’s mash-ups include the sounds of Donald Byrd, The Notorious B.I.G., and Amiri Baraka texts to create a complex collage, piecing together a complicated and messy telling of what it means to exist in his skin, in his body, in this country, at this moment in time. This event is paired with a writing and performance workshop led by Omar and open to all youth participants. One workshop participant will be selected to share original works created during the workshop at the evening performance.
