The Southern ROOTS Collective was born out of  a mutual respect and friendship among artists living in the deep south representing original jazz, hip-hop and spoken word. This collection of artists includes M.U.G.A.B.E.E. (Men Under Guidance Acting Before Early Extinction) from Raymond, Mississippi, Sunni Patterson, Courtney Bryan and Saddi Khali, all of whom are from New Orleans, Louisiana. This group represents a new generation of national artists collaborating to use their art for positive social change. This group will be in residence with Junebug Production, Inc's Free Southern Theater Institute from MArch 27th through April 3rd.  

The Southern ROOTS Collective will perform at Ashe Cultural Arts Center, 1712 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., Friday, March 28th and Saturday, March 29th. Both performances will take place at 7:30 PM.
