Samora Abayomi Pinderhughes's The Transformations Suite combines music, theatre, film, and poetry to examine the radical history of resistance within the communities of the African Diaspora.

Continuing the tradition of artists such as Bob Marley, Duke Ellington, Marvin Gaye, Billie Holiday, and Tupac Shakur, the Suite paints a musical picture of the current state of social inequality and injustice in the United States and beyond. The Transformations Suite connects contemporary issues, such as the prison industrial complex and the Movement for Black Lives, with the history of revolutionary movements of color. It asks probing questions and builds an urgent case for rebellion in the present moment.
