“I'm a Black Man Who are You?”
Boulder, CO (Jan. 28, 2014)…To celebrate African American History Month, Barnes & Noble will present a book signing and performance with Boulder’s David Preston Sharp, D. Min., author of “I am a Black Man, Who are You?” (Dorrance Pub. 2012) on Sat. Feb. 15, at 1:00pm. The event will be held at the Boulder Barnes & Noble, 2999 Pearl St, Boulder, CO 80301. Sharp is an award-winning songwriter and poet who has performed on Broadway, in films, on television, and directed for the theater. For more information please contact Barnes and Noble at (303) 444-0349.
Sharp’s book recounts the life lessons that sparked the discovery of his uniqueness, inner beauty, joy, passion and power. Set in the deep south of the United States during the turbulence of the 1960’s, Dr. Sharp shares how he learned to accept himself and claim who he really is, and tells of the champions of love who helped him find the strength and courage to do so. He reveals how he learned to face life no matter what life makes you face, and what it means to remember who you are.
At the event, Sharp will speak about the significance of Black History Month, the reasons to celebrate all our cultures, and his experience in attending Rev. Martin Luther King’s funeral as a young boy. David grew up in the climate and influence of the social justice efforts of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, of which his father, a Presbyterian minister, was a member, and of which Dr. King was a founder.
Sharp’s life experiences capture the dynamic tension that has been a part of people learning to live in harmony and mutual respect. He is an engaging, talented artist who uses the arts as a vehicle to explore and celebrate the human journey, honor its triumphs and challenges and spark new breakthroughs in the art of living.
"All of us contribute to American History, no matter our culture and heritage,” says Sharp. “As America becomes more diverse, we need to honor the cultures that make up American society. Though this month focuses on the African American journey, we all come from cultures and heritages, and they all contribute daily to the American landscape. To honor them, I feel, is to honor our common humanity and celebrate that which makes us unique. "
David Sharp and his wife, Dr. Jeannine Goode-Allen will present, "Tap Into Power For Life", from March 21-23, at their studio, 4939 N. Broadway, Unit 65, Boulder, CO 80304. This workshop shows how tap dancing can be a potent and useful tool to help you connect to your spiritual life in a powerful and deepening way. Tap dancing evolved from David witnessing his mother’s healing via her own tap dancing. Initially, David wanted to help others by entertaining, which he did--performing on film, television, and stage. As a practicing minister he discovered that tap dancing could be used as a form of prayer or meditation. Sharp says, “The Tap into Power Life workshop will use basic tap steps as a foundation to create powerful group rhythms into which we will access the resources within us to live the challenges of life while retaining joy and humor. Come experience what it feels like to connect deeply with others as we express the wisdom of our hearts through our feet. No experience is necessary and we provide the tap shoes.”
Sharp will be performing at the California African American Museum’s Target Sundays at CAAM on Sun., Feb. 2, from 12-3pm. He will be enacting portions of his one-man show, “I’m a Black Man, Who Are You?”
