    NBC 5 and the Dallas Black Dance Theatre (DBDT) invite you to experience the Cultural Awareness series February 15 - 17 at the Dee & Charles Wyly Theatre in Dallas.

    DBDT produces a dramatic lesson on the Civil Rights Movement through soul-stirring moves set to the magical voices of Nina Simone and Odetta Holmes, known simply as Odetta. The two works will transfix audiences in the Cultural Awareness Series. Iconic choreographer Dianne McIntyre’s The Nina Simone Project epitomizes Nina Simone’s regal presence with choreography set to Simone’s signature classical, jazz, and soul fusion.
