Mississippi Journey: Three Life Experiences, tells the life journey of three Arizona residents with deep roots in the Magnolia state. From very different cultural and ethnic backgrounds, Rev. James Pennington – Pastor at First Congregational United Church of Christ, Lisa Chow – Artistic Director of Desert Dance Theatre and Floyd Alvin Galloway – Owner of AGE2 Management Services will share experiences that they have found in common that have connected them in their life through their journey from Mississippi to Arizona.

Mississippi is a state of many paradoxes, conflicts and puzzles, but also through its struggles molded people of strength and character. The evening will also shed more light on a Chinese American community in the Mississippi Delta through filmmaker and special guest, Samantha Cheng – Executive Producer of Heritage Series, and her documentary Honor and Duty: The Mississippi Delta Chinese.
