On December 6-7 Hip Hop Theater Artist Rickerby Hinds will be visiting our campus. On Thursday night at 8pm in Girvertz 1004, don't miss a performance of Dreamscape written and directed by Professor Hinds.


In 1998 a 19-year-old African American young woman was shot to death by four police officers in Riverside, California - while passed out in her car. Through poetry, dance and beatboxing, Dreamscape explores the life of Myeisha Mills (Tyisha Miller) and re-frames her death by following the trajectory and impact of the 12 bullets that struck her - each one triggering its own unique memory.
