Harlem River Park long shot

Conceived by artist kara lynch, “saved” is an outdoor sound installation-performance that marks the 102nd anniversary of the lynching of Laura Nelson and her fourteen-year old son, L.W. Nelson at the Old Schoolton Bridge in Okemah, Oklahoma.

“saved” will be a living memorial featuring Harlem’s own Impact Repertory Theater, in collaboration with First Corinthians, Convent Baptist, and Ephesus Gospel choirs, together performing an original score by Composer, Pianist and Arranger Courtney Bryan and with Stage Direction by Charlotte Brathwaite.  Join us.
