Question Bridge: the Black Male Blueprint  Discussion Featuring Singer/Songwriter Rudy Currence 

What are the pressing issues facing black males today? This panel discussion responds to an urgent question that a young participant in the Question Bridge: Black Males exhibition posed to an elder: “Why didn’t you leave us a blueprint?” Local community leaders from grassroots groups to government organizations will lead a multigenerational dialogue with the audience on the issues that need to be addressed and the strategies needed to move forward.

This event will also feature an opening performance from recording artist Rudy Currence. This triple threat singer-songwriter musician, producer has become what his fans can only summarize as an experience and seeing is believing. After hearing the soulful voice, it’s obvious that Rudy was raised singing gospel music. The son of a Pastor and native of Rock Hill, SC, Rudy like many of the legendary performers before him perfected his craft while playing and singing in church.

Medium Cindy Kaza               

Cindy Kaza is a clairvoyant (clear seeing), clairaudient (clear hearing) and clairsentient (clear feeling) who works across the country as an evidential medium. Evidential mediumship is a style of mediumship practiced around the world that puts heavy weight on the medium’s ability to bring through extremely specific evidence to the sitter. This evidence can include, but is certainly not limited to, names, personality traits, physical ailments, favorite past times, and phrases often used by loved ones in spirit. The purpose of this style of mediumship is to diminish skepticism among sitters and to prove that the medium is truly connecting with the client’s loved ones in spirit.

Speak About It

When Speak About It was first performed at Bowdoin College in 2009, the students and staff involved realized that it was something truly special. Just five years later, the show has given rise to the incorporation of Speak About It, Inc. and helped to change the conversation about consent and healthy relationships on more than 26 college and high school campuses across the country. The following timeline provides a summary of that journey from the first performance to the present day, making note of some of the major events and key players who have made our growth and success possible.

Open Mic Night with Singer/Songwriter Matt Beilis                                         

New Yorker Matt Beilis was born with his distinct voice. Some would say it's unconventional, which would fit the personality of this singer/songwriter/pianist. Matt traded in his Ivy League education along with a lucrative finance career--for a gig in a piano store, betting that his artistic talents would propel him beyond the comfort that his academic achievements all but guaranteed.
