The U-M Stamps School of Art and Design presents “Considering Matthew Shepard and Discussion”. Matthew Shepard was brutally murdered in 1998 and ultimately led to the creation of the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, legislation that broadened the definition of a hate crime to include sexual orientation. This piece responds to the murder and was created by Composer Craig Hella Johnson. The U-M School of Music, Theatre and Dance and UMMA made a live performance film of the U-M Chamber Choir performing the oratorio this year. It is followed by a conversation with Eugene Rogers, conductor of the show, and Johnson.
