 Last night the Spill Oracle Class visited Inherit Light for Choir Practice. What a beautiful way to embody the living legacies of Ida B. Wells, Ella Baker and Essex Hemphill. Thank you  #turnthelightoftruthuponthem   #givelightandpeoplewillfindtheway  #ilovemyselfenoughtobewhoiam  (alexispauline)

Inherit Light: Prayer Meeting

Sunday, September 9th 2:30-5:30pm -

Sharing the technology Sangodare created (from the process of character development for film) using affirmative, collective and individual intention to create prayer as sonic art. Sangodare also shared a sermon.


 Prayer as an intentional technology to generate Queer Black Futures? Oh yes!!!! (alexispauline)

 Yesterday’s Inherit Light Prayer Meeting was beautiful! @sangodarejroxwallace preached “What if God is Love?” with wisdom from June Jordan, Audre Lorde, Luther Vandross and even Dolly Parton y’all! And we learned and practiced an intentional prayer form to bring more acceptance and rest into our lives. 💜💜💜💜💜 @ Regis Center for Art (alexispauline)

Preparing for "Inherit Light"

AN EVOLUTIONARY PRACTICE OF LOVE CONSCIOUSNESS

This exhibition featured live Sermons, Altars, a Multisensory Dome, Films, soundscapes, original music compositions, adornment and other visual art elements sourced by Sangodare's art, collaborations and spiritual practice. The sermons drew on Black Feminist Sacred Texts, Scriptural wisdom from the African diaspora and Soul music. The altars were activated by touch and intention which called forth sound, video and/or light to the altar.

Inherit Light: An Evolutionary Practice of Love Consciousness, the exhibition, opened on the University of Minnesota's Twin Cities campus in Minneapolis, MN on September 6th, 2018 at the Quarter Gallery in the Regis Center for the Arts. It was curated by the incomparable Courtney Reid-Eaton of Durham, NC - The Black Center.

Such a joy to have Joie Lou Shakur here this week apprenticing with Julia Sangodare Roxanne Wallace and engaging the most important technology of #InheritLight — the (queer black) circle. Powerful spirit, divine soul.#blackradiance (alexispauline)
