Anniversary of Atlanta Shooting Recognized With Musical Tribute

Today, April 16, marks the one-month anniversary of the Atlanta spa shooting. In collaboration with the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, U of A's Asian Pacific Americans Employee Impact Group and Ensemble HanSori came together to pay musical tribute and remembrance through this video.

"Umma-ya, Nuna-ya" (Dear Mother, Dear Sister) is a traditional Korean folksong that expresses the longing for home.

The performance is dedicated to the women, mothers and sisters who have taken on numerous, often unrecognized, often quiet sacrifices to create a home for others and themselves.
