A Prelude to A Glorious Revolution was inspired by the Black Arts Movement. The performance art piece is centered on dance, as a commentary on the Black Power Movement and the recognition of what always existed in the artistic psyche of Black people in the Americas, an African consciousness and spirituality. Written and choreographed by Greer E. Mendy, A Prelude to A Glorious Revolution is an elder Black woman’s artist statement. The work addresses history, consciousness and liberation of the Black female body. It is a recognition, acceptance and proclamation of self as an elder, ordinary dancer, maintaining a Black political, social and artistic thought and presence. In the end Prelude to A Glorious Revolution preaches the goodness of humanity.
