This is the libretto, or text, for Aminah's Symphonic Poem, a multi-media performance she envisions with art, music, and dialogue as she interprets the stories handed down to her by her Uncle Alvin and by other elders in the community.

Artist’s comments

"It is a body of work where souls live, breathe, fly, and mingle in freedom- community where lives are lived, forming generations of people with one long memory. My upbringing of creative independence has impressed on me the importance of creating innovative and inventive art that is based on family and community histories. It is a gift I create to be passed on to future generations." - Aminah Robinson, The Sidewalks of Market Street
