The UNC Department of Communication will present “Beyond the Roots,” a new work featuring UNC student and activist Imani Williams.
Her performance explores the reality of growing up as a Black woman in an inherently turbulent and prejudiced America. Seen through the eyes of a young girl living in the suburbs of Atlanta, the audience is able to see the impact of how historical events shape her into the individual she is today. These moments are threaded together in the form of performance and poetry to show how pain, love, education, and reflection encourages individuals to use their voice and stand up for something bigger than themselves.
