Black History Month marked with free musical performances

February 18, 2019

UA-PTC Cultural Diversity and Community Involvement Committee proudly presents these events in celebration of Black History month at UA-PTC.

Epiphany – The Glow: The Hopes and Ambitions of a Rhymer will appear Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2019 at 12:15 p.m. at CHARTS Theater.

Admission is free of charge.

Epiphany –also known as Big Piph- was formed by the very thing he now needs: The Glow. Through songs, visuals, and stories, join him in his mission to shake up the universe. In this one-man show, crowd participation is a must, but ultimately, the journey may lead the audience to find something more important.

Epiphany “Big Piph” Morrow is a Stanford-educated international emcee and community builder. This noted TEDx speaker is a solo artist and front man for the seven-piece jazz and funk infused hip-hop ensemble, “Big Piph & Tomorrow Maybe.” His music, talks, and workshops have taken him abroad to countries such as Morocco, The Gambia, Seychelles, Thailand, Myanmar, and more. After a decade plus in the industry, his unique entertainment is relayed through the lenses of purpose, humor, creativity, race, and a global perspective. His latest project is a new age narrative, one-man show entitled, The Glow, with musical director Corey Harris.

This event is part of the Celebration of Black History month at UA-PTC and is co-sponsored by the UA-PTC Cultural Diversity and Community Involvement Committee. For more information about his performance, visit www.uaptc.edu/epiphany.

Shaun Boothe is an award winning hip hop artist, TEDx speaker and creator of The Unauthorized Biography Series, a critically acclaimed musical project that celebrates the world’s greatest cultural icons through biographical rap songs – Repackaging History through Hip Hop.

Each chapter of the series captures the legacy of an influential iconic figure in a documentary-style music video. Icons featured in the series include Bob Marley, Muhammad Ali, Martin Luther King Jr., Barack Obama, Bruce Lee, Oprah Winfrey, Tupac Shakur, Terry Fox, Nelson Mandela, Malala Yousafzai, and more. Getting “blog love” from Kanye West and tweets from Diddy himself — Boothe’s sixth icon in his series — it’s clear that he’s getting the attention of the right people.

Shaun Boothe is renowned for his conceptual and highly interactive performances – many of which have graced the opening stages of concerts for multi-platinum artists, including Nas, Lauryn Hill, Talib Kweli, and Snoop Dogg.
