The current social climate has stirred feelings and stories from our community members that indicate our imperfect past as an institution. We are committed to examining our past and present as we work toward a more inclusive future. We seek to provide an environment that embraces and celebrates differences and feels like home to all.
We mourn the senseless deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and so many other innocent men and women of color. We recognize that these events have a deeply personal impact on our African-American community members. We acknowledge your pain and stand in solidarity with you.
William Leavengood '78 and composer Constantine Grame, will present GASPARILLA: THE MUSICAL in a workshop in the form of a reading/singing of the musical in the Palladium’s Hough Hall with help from a grant from St. Petersburg Arts Alliance and the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs.
