Fine Arts Department Events!

FTCC Fine Arts is proud to provide you an exclusive look at Sonny Kelly’s “The Talk,” A One-Man show. 

Join us live on Thursday, July 16th, at 1:30PM for a panel discussion among FTCC Fine Arts Department Chair, Dennis Johnson; Communication Program Coordinator, Sonja Osborne; and actor/writer/teacher Sonny Kelly, as we discuss this show and talk about racial issues in America.  We will take questions from the audience during the panel discussion.

Talking The Talk at FTCC

Join FTCC faculty and students as we discuss racial reconciliation, equity, inclusion, and connection! 
The Talk is an eclectic theatrical experience that weaves together interactive theater, a dynamic embodied performance, and a multi-media production with the words of James Baldwin, Langston Hughes, W.E.B. DuBois, Frantz Fanon, Paul Gilroy, Ta-Nehisi Coates and others. A virtuoso communicator, performer and facilitator, Dr. Sonny Kelly embodies over 20 characters, and thoughtfully ushers audiences into a courageous space to have difficult, but necessary, conversations about diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Sonny Kelly The Talk

The Talk is about returning to memories (personal and collective), returning to our ancestors, returning to faith, and reckoning with an often confusing contemporary composite truth. At its core, The Talk is really about a father’s profoundly abiding love for his son. With this work, Dr. Kelly invites audience members into a complicated, but loving, family where we are all encouraged to imagine new possibilities together.

Dr. Kelly performs The Talk and facilitates community discussions about equity, conflict management, intercultural communication, and creative self-expression at schools, universities, civic institutions, community centers, places of worship, and theaters around the world. This performance lasts 80 minutes long, and can be adjusted according to the needs of your community. The performance is followed by a 30 to 60 minute talk-back (community conversation).
