The Department of African American Studies presents an evening with The Mark Lomax Quartet and The Spring Colloquium . Please join us in celebrating the African Diaspora through musical performance and discussion.

The Mark Lomax Quartet will ambitiously tell the story of Black America through a suite from 400: An Afrikan Epic, a12-album cycle released in 2019. “400” is divided into thirds and explores thousands of years of the history that is pre-colonial Afrika, the Ma’afa (the 400 years between 1619 and 2019), and Afro-futurism expressing a vision of what Blacks in America will heal toward in the next 400 years; a healthy, high functioning, and united block of the African diaspora.
