Purdy is a former employee at Ebony magazine, an art teacher at the college and high school levels and an activist, having been particularly active in building race relations and marching for peace.

Her oil paintings, created on gold and red carved wood, are designed in the genre of religious icons. The Icons of the Civil Rights Movement, in particular, have been highlighted displays at presidential inaugurations, colleges and universities and at many museums across the United States and around the world.

In addition, the night's celebration will provide the audience with a glimpse of the Harlem Renaissance through a night of art and entertainment. It will kick off at the Commons in conjunction with Steak Night and include performances by the Moving WORD Dance Team, the New England Soul Line Dancing Network and special guest performance by the Unspoken Word Poet Franic Pina. There will be dancing immediately following the program.
