In collaboration with our Parent Council, Oak Grove is thrilled to support an on-campus residency with Benjamin Mertz, composer, performer, and song leader who specializes in music of the Black Spiritual tradition. This residency will occur the week of February 21, 2022.
Benjamin is a human rights and racial justice advocate. When not performing music, he writes and speaks on issues of racial justice, economic justice, Black History, and works on creating interfaith and interracial alliances.
Our students of all ages, parents, and staff will have the opportunity to engage with Benjamin throughout his stay.
In addition, the Thursday evening Zoom session will be open to the public at no charge. This public event is on Thursday, February 24, from 7-8 PM.
