Tales of the Black Experience from 400: An Afrikan Epic

An evening with The Mark Lomax Quartet
and The Spring Colloquium for African American Studies

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.
