'Building Foundations of Love: Alberta's Dream'


Saturday March 3rd 5-7pm
Following Freedom City 2017, and we approach Valentines Day, Mothering Sunday and celebrate 100 years since the Suffragettes made a difference for women, we invite you to this special event.

Alberta's Dream: 'Building Foundations of Love (not walls)' tells the story of the life of one of the worlds most important mothers, who quietly raised Dr. Martin Luther King with his brother and sister on a foundation of belief and love. In this performance, Alberta finds her voice to tell her own story, with I-Sister, a five piece jazz ensemble (Andrea Harris, vocals, Lisa Delaney, Guitar, Penny Callow, Bass, Jerry Drake, Drums and Helen Walker (trumpet), Belles Up (French Horns), singers from Uplifted Women's Choir and narrators Andrea Harris (I- Sister), Chantelle Howes (Crossings Band) and Ellen Phethean (local writer).

"Isn't it every parents' dream, like Alberta, that their children might live in a world free from racism, poverty and war?
That all children grow up on a foundation of love? That all children learn the skills to effect positive change?"

Tickets are free, although donations would be welcome. Proceeds to Amnesty International.
