Ms. Aimbaye channels Mrs. Hamer, transfixing the audience in a riveting 60-minute journey of storytelling as she ties in the present political climate of the country empowered with eleven inspiring songs and a video montage of the Civil Rights movement. Ms. Aimbaye has the power of a warrior when she speaks and the voice of an angel when she sings evoking emotions with tears of joy and pain as well as sorrow and laughter. A critic once wrote, “When Ms. Mzuri sings God smiles and angels flap their wings”. Audiences will feel the courageous spirit and determination of Mrs. Hamer’s emotional twists and turns in her triumphant quest for human dignity and freedom.
Presented by the Office of African American Affairs and the Office of the Vice President and Chief Officer for Diversity & Equity.
