Co-hosted by New York City Council Member Gale Brewer in honor of Black History Month

Born in 19th century Ghana, Laura Adorka Kofi would follow her spiritual calling to the United States where she founded The Missionary African Universal Church and became known as the charismatic leader "Mother Kofi." The multiple Grammy-nominated trumpeter and Gotham Kings bandleader Alphonso Horne has compiled a selection of period music and dance from Africa and America to tell her history in the immersive theatrical ceremony, Mother Kofi: The Tale of an African Princess. Experience Kofi's inspiring life as a community activist, martyr, and inspiration for the founding of the Adorkaville settlement in Jacksonville. Horne and his cast lead a Trans-Atlantic journey that invokes the energies of the audience and the ancestors alike in service of a truly healing ritual.
