What Forgiveness Looks Like is a multi-disciplinary art show that includes dance, song and spoken word with an amazing variety of artists. Presenter Simba Sandra Yangala was inspired by four children who live in the Congo. These children have been abused in every sense of the word and will be represented as a Thinker, Dreamer, Singer and Dancer. The show depicts what forgiveness looks like to the children after tragedy strikes in their lives. This event is a fundraiser, with all proceeds going to support the children’s visa fees, travel, and a better quality of life.

About the Presenter: Simba Yangala was born in Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo). She is a performing artist, choreographer, playwright and educator. She studied Liberal Arts at LaGuardia Community College. She is the Artistic Director of her own performing arts company JungleDom Network. Simba is also a teacher in the Ethics for Children program at the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture, where she has taught ethics to young children for more than 10 years.

Ethics for Children meets concurrently with our Sunday programs. Please join us!

Our Ethics Matters theme for July and August is The Art of Ethics: how the arts and daily living reflect our ethical ideals.

11 a.m. is gathering time, to meet and greet one another.  We start the formal program at 11:15 and usually end about 12:30.  After that, we have a time of informal conversation with some beverages and snacks.  Members and regular visitors: please bring some snacks to share.
