Bril Barrett is a talented tap dancer based in Chicago, where he founded M.A.D.D. Rhythms (Making a Difference Through Dancing). He uses dance to make a difference in the under-served communities of Chicago and beyond because he believes that having access and options gives a child a greater chance at a positive life. Join Barrett and Tuxedo Junction host, Sydney Chatman, for preshow cocktails and a special preshow tap performance. Later, Barrett and Chatman will discuss gun violence and community-based solutions on Chicago’s South Side in this special Afterwords discussion.

BLACK HISTORY ASSEMBLY
Cooley High Live on Stage
It’s 1964 at Edwin G. Cooley High School on the Near North Side of Chicago, and it seems like the perfect day for high-school buds Cochise and Preach to cut class. They head to the zoo, meet up with friends, flirt with girls, get invited to a partynothing that seems extraordinary to any of them. But later, at the party, their lives are inescapably altered when they take a ride with their friends Robert and Stone. It seems the Cadillac those two pulled up in might not actually have been theirs, and when the law gets involved, tempers flair and violence splits the two best friends apart forever.
