The Opulence of Integrity

  • Colby College 4000 Mayflower Hill Drive Waterville, ME, 04901 United States (map)

Join us for an evening of The Opulence of Integrity by Christal Brown in collaboration with Tyrone Beavans, Jay Bouey, Wendell Gray, Orlando Zane Hunter, Jr and Ricarrdo Valentine

Inspired by boxing's outspoken superstar Muhammad Ali’s career as a boxer and life as a social activist, public martyr, and human being, The Opulence of Integrity deploys eclectic movement and multiple media to illustrate the turmoil of a life infused by divinity yet misinterpreted by humanity. By using Ali as an archetype, The Opulence of Integrity explores the struggle for identity for men of color in the United States with an intimate and expansive look at social, economic, and spiritual trappings that prohibit freedom. Brown pours her own experience into the work and dedicates it to her father, brother, and uncle who, in her words, “fought but did not win” and to her son “whose battle has not yet begun.”
