Cost: Free (Donations Encouraged)
On August 13, APAC pays homage to Black chanteuse and civil rights activist Nina Simone with a new show, “To Be Free: The Sound of Nina Simone,” featuring Amma Osei (Broadway's “Rock of Ages”), Fredi Walker-Browne (Broadway's “Rent”), and recording artist JaQuita May with special guests.
Last summer at APAC, Osei played the Narrator in “Joseph…Dreamcoat” and JaQuita played the Acid Queen in “The Who's Tommy” concerts. A portion of the tribute’s proceeds will support the Loveland Foundation, an organization committed to showing up for communities of color, especially Black women and girls. Their "resources and initiatives…prioritize opportunity, access, validation, and healing."
