Triumph of the Spirit Awards

Nov 16, 2016 @ 6:00pm - 8:00pm

The Triumph of the Spirit Awards, presented by the Embrey Human Rights Program at Southern Methodist University, will honor the accomplishment, commitment, and innovation of African physician Georges Bwelle, who goes the distance to offer free healthcare for his country's impoverished, and Carol Brady Houston, a compassionate Plano-based supporter of special-needs children and their families. Themed "VOICES," the event will feature performances by former Sudanese child soldier/current hip-hop peace activist, Emmanuel Jal and smart, gritty country-folk music of Austin-based BettySoo; compelling spoken-word and live-action performances by Journeyman Ink; and a VOICES-inspired mixed-media artwork gallery created by SMU students and local professionals. Hors d'oeuvres and valet included. Cash bar.
