Arts workshop - 9/22/18
In September 2018, City Chapel welcomed Andre Henry as a guest speaker to our “Addressing Injustice Through Creativity” Arts Workshop. Andre is a writer, musician, and speaker with a passion for racial reconciliation. He was able to contribute to our ongoing discussion on the arts, helping those who attended the workshop to become more aware of the role that creativity can play in bringing about justice.
Andre began the event prayerfully singing these lyrics by Bob Dylan, welcoming us all into a posture of wondering how seemingly unstoppable injustices might be addressed.
How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
And how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
How many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind
-Bob Dylan, Blowin’ In The Wind
