​Dawn Harbor, Rachel Marie-Crane Williams and Christopher- Rasheem McMillan explore the horrible story of Mary Turner’s murder through art, dance, and spoken word on the stage of the Englert Theater. This story is pivotal in the larger history of lynching and racial violence​ in our country. Prints by Rachel Marie-Crane Williams and sculptures by Dawn Harbor will be on exhibit in the Douglas and Linda Paul Gallery, Englert 2nd Floor.

After the performance we hope you can join us for an intimate discussion related to art, race, history, white supremacy, and violence.
