Join us for a daylong meditation on the distinctive musical, spiritual, and cultural contributions of Dr. Clark and the Clark Sisters, to include presentations by: Ambre Dromgoole, Dr. Almeda Wright, Dr. Ashon Crawley, Dr. Cheryl Townsend Gilkes, Dr. Deborah Smith Pollard, Dr. Eboni Marshall Turman, Dr. Guthrie Ramsey, Dr. Henry Washington, Jr., Dr. Marla Frederick, and Dr. Todne Thomas.
