Mark Lomax II, a sought-after lecturer, specializes in the socio-political and spiritual aspects of African-American art music, race, and using the arts to build community. Lomax released 400: An Afrikan Epic in January 2019. This magnum opus ambitiously tells the story of the Afrikan diaspora over the course of a 12-album cycle. Divided into thirds, the cycle explores thousands of years of the history that is pre-colonial Afrika, the Ma’afa (400 years between 1619 and 2019), and Afro-futurism expressing a vision of what Blacks in America will heal toward in the next 400 years. Dr. Lomax is currently presenting virtual performances and lectures with his ensemble, and works in philanthropy.
