WVU Parkersburg will host Namoli Brennet, transgender singer/songwriter, for her presentation of “We Belong” at noon in the college theater. In observance of Coming Out Day, Brennet will share her story through song. The event is free and open to the public.

Brennet’s award-winning music has been featured on NPR, PBS and in films including the Emmy-award winning documentary, “Out of the Silence,” which details the struggle of a gay teen growing up in rural Pennsylvania. When she was hired to direct music at a church in Arizona, Brennet was living and presenting as male. Shortly after, she came out as transgender and started a public transition to female. While over time her own church community supported her, she was eventually fired by the main funding arm of the church. Her ability to relate her story with humor, compassion and depth captivates audiences and leaves them with a collective sense of their own place in humanity, no matter who they are or what they choose. In the words of one of her most uplifting songs, attendees will walk away singing “We Belong.”

West Virginia University at Parkersburg and the Historic Smoot Theatre will host a showing of “Selma,” directed by Ava DuVernay.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. leads a dangerous campaign for equal voting rights for African Americans in Alabama, but ultimately promotes a change that forever alters history. The march from Selma to Montgomery, Dr. King’s speech at Alabama’s state capital, and the Voting Rights Act signing become some of the most significant victories in the civil rights movement.

A panel discussion will follow the film.

Tickets are free to WVU Parkersburg students who present a current, valid student ID and $5 for the general public.
