We Are Here! Living the Legacy of Dr. Givens
The Givens Park Working Group, in partnership with Forklift Danceworks and Austin PBS, invites you to tune in for a virtual celebration and community conversation honoring Dr. Everett Givens, the namesake of Givens Park and a tireless advocate for the Black community. Host Kimberly Holiday (KAZI’s “Lady Joy”) and cast members from Givens Swims kick off the festivities and artist Cindy Elizabeth will share reflections on her work Allegiance, installed at Givens Park last summer. Then, Givens Park community leaders will discuss the past, present, and future of the park in a conversation moderated by Alberta Phillips. Donations to nonprofit Roslyn’s Novel, which supports the Givens community, are encouraged.
