Folks gathered in the alley of the Motor House at a reception before Fades & Fellowship IV, a theatrical commentary that explores contemporary issues. The show is set in a neighborhood barbershop, which has a rich history of often serving as an unofficial center of a community. The evening benefited the Association of Black Psychologists.
