Norman Jackson is a loved member of this company. This is a baby shower of a new baby girl expected on December 8th. Nu World Art Ensemble is celebrating new life. Norman has done professional acting and has been on The Wire and is such a support to this family and the males of Nu World Art Ensemble have been such a team. He was my son's best man during his wedding and he has been so wonderful working in gang prevention pieces. He's been so consistent with us since the beginning and as a part of this family unit. He is a young man who was involved with the streets and flipped everything around because of his involvement with the arts.
We come together in painful times like the death of Next Generation Art Ensemble members like Norman's daughter this past summer. Now we are here again some weeks afterwards to celebrate a new beginning. We celebrate life and we celebrate death and that's a big part of our community.
WombWork Black Box Theatre is available to host these kinds of community gathering events.
