Indaba and M.A.D. Content, Clinton Arts Council, Clinton Human Rights Committee, and Henry Carter Hull Library are pleased to help bring to our shoreline community the critically acclaimed one-act play written and directed by Award-Winning screenwriter, Steve Driffin, called Death by a Thousand Cuts: A Requiem for Black and Brown Men.

This full theatrical production performed by professional actors in sold-out venues in CT and off-Broadway in NYC depicts the life encounters, trauma and microaggressions of Black and Brown men who have been historically and culturally silent about the pain they endure living in their skin in America.

Performance followed by a Q&A and panel discussion.

Allegorically told, Death by a Thousand Cuts: A Requiem for Black and Brown Men candidly unearths the raw experiences of melanated men. Drawing from the joy, pain, and the trauma of surviving in America, this is a requiem 400 years in the making.

May 15, 2024 - 8:00 am to 5:00 pm

Danfords Hotel, Marina and Spa

This conference began as a response to a recommendation by the Long Island Sound Assembly that there should be a venue where all of the current science relating to Long Island Sound could be presented.  The first Long Island Sound Research Conference occurred in 1992. 

The idea was to gather scientists and students from all of the relevant disciplines together, to present and synthesize a big picture of Long Island Sound science. Proceedings volumes were produced, and are still available from Sea Grant via the NOAA Central Library.

Historically, the conference was organized by the Long Island Sound Foundation until 2016, after which the Sea Grant programs of Connecticut and New York. shared in the responsibilities. 

Support for the Long Island Sound Research Conference is provided by the Long Island Sound Study.

Registration: $40 / $30 students
