AAMP Commune featuring LaTreice Branson @AAMP
African American Museum in Philadelphia
Sunday, November 28, 1:45 p.m. AAMP Commune featuring LaTreice Branson Included with Museum Admission | Free for AAMP Members! IN-PERSON EVENT
On select Sundays, AAMP invites visitors to experience our exhibitions through the lens of a community conversation with museum staff, along with invited artists from our region. More than just an art talk, AAMP Commune is a community-led dialogue exploring key themes found within the exhibition, historical narratives, and our collective experiences as people. Held within AAMP’s upper exhibition galleries, this one-hour dialogue starts with an introductory artistic response by our featured artists and is followed by an open dialogue.
This next installment of AAMP Commune centers on the work of Richard J. Watson, and features percussionist and performance artist LaTreice V. Branson, in conversation with musician, professor and cultural worker, Amari Rebel. Over the course of his studies, Amari has lived and worked in Brazil, Ghana, Cuba, and various cities throughout the United States, deepening his connection and commitment to the health, well-being, and liberation of global African people. His travels have also shaped his music, which he has shared on stages across the US, in Africa, and in Europe.
LaTreice V. Branson is an educator, community activist, and drummer from Philadelphia who enriches her community through interactive drum performances and gatherings that often feature impromptu audience collaborations. Exploring the creation of new soundscapes through improvisation, Branson has influenced a reciprocal culture of sharing that unites marginalized communities. She also is the founder of Drum Like a Lady and Radical Adventures in Wellness, curating events that enhance personal and communal wellness through music programming, guided conversations, ecotherapy and disability advocacy. Along with facilitating this month’s AAMP Commune experience through open conversation, Branson will also share a few selections from her deep repertoire of music. Guests are encouraged to arrive 30 minutes early to allow time to explore the Richard J. Watson exhibition, on display October 2021 through March 2022.
