10th Year Anniversary Gala: A Shepherd Among Us**

Philadelphia, PA 19121

Don’t miss this historical moment, marking 10 years of phenomenal programming for the people. Grammy-nominated composer Hannibal Lokumbe’s original musical piece for mass choir and jazz band commemorates the life and work of the Church of the Advocate’s legendary activist and priest, Father Paul M. Washington.

Special honorees include hip-hop recording artists The Roots, who performed at Art Sanctuary’s very first event. A hip hop group that’s gone from underground to Grammy with integrity, artistry, smart business sense, and style. Guest performers include Hannibal’s-own New York-based quintet, the Clayton White Singers, and the Creative And Performing Arts High School choir, and guest conductor Donald Dumpson.

Following the performance, join us for elegant food and drink, meet the artist, reception, and a great party! Black tie optional.

** Shepherd Among Us is based on Father Paul M. Washington’s book, Other Sheep I Have: The Autobiography of Father Paul M. Washington.

Partners: Girard College and the Africana Studies Center at the University of Pennsylvania
