New Dawn Theatre and a host of Minnesota artists have come with each other to develop A Breath for George, a selection of tunes, interviews, and poems designed to fork out tribute to the daily life of George Floyd. 

New Dawn Theatre’s web site states the selection was designed to honor Floyd’s daily life, publicly and honestly have interaction and talk to this instant and previous times, and share points that foster hope and favourable variations. The selection delivers an outlet to tackle the historical harm that systemic racism and law enforcement violence have long had on Black people.

New Dawn Theatre’s artistic director Austene Van stated on their web site, “There is benefit in people being aware of that they are not by yourself in the way that they are feeling proper now. There is also benefit in talking real truth to people who have never ever listened to our stories or ever been in situation to listen to our stories.”

Involved artists are:

  • James T. Alfred
  • Aimee Bryant
  • Wanda Christine
  • Perri Gaffney
  • Peter Macon
  • Thomasina Petrus
  • T. Mychael Rambo
  • Frank Sentwali
  • Regina Marie Williams
  • Jevetta Steel

There will also be interviews with Sarah Bellamy, Harvey Blanks, Melvin Carter Jr., James Craven, Talvin Wilks, and professor John Wright. All screenings of A Breath for George are free and outdoor, with donations remaining recognized for nearby charities.
