The Sanctuary’s 10th Anniversary Celebration Decades Exhibition with Performance by Thomas Mapfumo and the Blacks Unlimited

April 2, 2016 @ 8:00 pm 10:00 pm EDT

The Sanctuary for Independent Media celebrates its 10th anniversary with a photo exhibition in the Underground Gallery featuring documentation of a decade’s worth of cultural programming, social action, and community building! Thomas Mapfumo has been the musical voice of protest in Zimbabwe and all of southern Africa for nearly half a century. Hero of the anti-apartheid movement in Rhodesia, then exiled from Zimbabwe because of his vocal criticism of government corruption, the legendary composer, guitarist and singer Thomas Mapfumo leads one of the world’s most dangerous dance bands- a nine-piece ensemble celebrating the past, present and future of African music. Easily the most famous singer in his native country, Mapfumo continues to live in exile from the regime of Robert Mugabe, and his music is banned at home.
