"Because of the War," A Film Screening by Toni Shapiro-Phim

Join Dr. Toni Shapiro-Phim for the screening of excerpts from her new documentary "Because of the War," and discuss the role of music and dance in resolving conflicts, challenging violence and building peace. This film tells the stories of how four superstars of Liberian music – Fatu Gayflor, Marie Nyenabo, Zaye Tete and Tokay Tomah – have used traditional arts to address injustice and inspire action for positive social change. Participants will view some of the film and engage in activities and dialogue related to the themes that are raised.
