Say It Loud - A Truth Teller Experience

Say It Loud - A Truth Teller Experience is a dynamic literary exposé featuring Author and Orator - Aquanza Cadogan. 

Say It Loud is the modern day revival of the artistic and literary explosion which defined the 1920's otherwise known as the 'Harlem Renaissance'. True to its name the 'Harlem Renaissance' was an awakening and with the perfect blend of intellectuals, literary artists, fine artists and musicians this period gave rise to a new culture which shaped the identity of the African American during the 1920's and 30's. 

Say It Loud breaths new life and energy into a platform that gave birth to some of the literary greats like Zora Neale Hurston, Langston Hughes, James Weldon-Johnson, and Alaine Locke. Who knows what greats will be born of this movement, patrons will be treated to special guest performances by neo soul and jazz musicians, cultural dance troupes and more of Central Florida's favorite performers. 

The Henao Center offers both the upscale and exclusive atmosphere that characterized places like the world famous Cotton Club and others. The main gallery is adorned with fine art from well known local and international artists while the more secluded 2nd gallery is primed for speakers and bands alike.
