Drumming & Myth: Healing Urban Youth with the Alchemy Group

Tuesday, March 29, 2016

Tuesday, March 29, 2016
Time: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Location: GDH 177/179

In 2012 Alchemy was one of twelve programs to receive the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award presented by First Lady Michelle Obama at The White House—the nation’s highest honor for after and out-of-school programs. 

Alchemy, Inc. is a nationally award-winning nonprofit organization dedicated to the development of urban male adolescents. Through the telling, discussion and analysis of myths, Alchemy participants learn that common themes in myth mirror common themes in life, which helps them incorporate the character traits of the hero into their own lives. On Tuesday, March 29th, founder of Alchemy, Inc., Kwame Scrugss, will lead us in a Grand Rounds immersion experience of drumming and mythological storytelling and a presentation on Alchemy, Inc. For more information on Alchemy:
