Epilogue: The Post-Horace Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra
This oral history concludes at the turn of the century, but the movement continues to this day. It has not been without difficulties and challenges, but has also experienced a great deal of energy, new faces and voices, continued community support, and the reaffirmation of the Arkestra/UGMAA ethos/aesthetic. Through the ups and downs of its history, in good times and bad, the constant has always been the politico-cultural commitment, spirit, and consciousness bonding of members throughout.
