MacArthur Award-winning artist Carrie Mae Weems presents the D.C. premiere of Grace Notes: Reflections for Now on Friday, October 20 at 8 p.m. in the Kennedy Center’s Eisenhower Theater.  Weems conceived Grace Notes—her first evening-length performance work—in the wake of the 2015 mass shooting that killed nine members of Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Grace Notes combines performance, music, song, video, dance, and spoken word in a moving, provocative exploration of the tenacity of grace among black Americans, and of grace’s overarching role in the pursuit of true democracy.
