Hasan Davis- York >>

Since 1997, Hasan Davis has been bringing history alive.  York, Black Explorer of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, is the second living history performance created by Hasan.  York's story takes him from Enslavement into the greatest challenges that a person can face.  In a race against nature and time York proved himself to be as capable and sometimes more capable than most of the able bodied volunteer of the Corp of Discovery. Hasan Davis is a living history performer, poet, storyteller and artist in residence using his talent for the written and spoken word to enhance his connection with the diverse communities he serves, and provide a context for considering, understanding and possibly resolving instances of stereotyping, prejudice and other divisive issues griping our communities.
