The past 14 months has put many local events before a global audience. Not least of these events was the in-custody death of Sandra Bland, a graduate of Prairie View A&M, as she left the gates of the campus. Since the day of that tragic event, members of The Shout have been building a bridge of support for the students of that campus. It has been impossible to ignore the power of the stories, and artistic expressions that emerge from young women and men on the campus. From theater performances to poetry to music, to the newly emerging hip-hop dance crew, the students have been processing their grief, trauma and reactions through art. Much of this art, however, has gone unseen beyond the boundaries of their town. Two performances will be held, one in Harris County and one in Prairie View, in order to amplify these students’ voices into an audience that they do not currently have access to influence.
