“NCIS: New Orleans” star CCH Pounder captivated guests at the Contemporary Arts Center fundraiser, “An Evening with CCH Pounder.” She gave a spoken word performance from Donald Rawley’s “Slow Dance on the Fault Line,” with accompaniment by acclaimed jazz bassist David Pulphus. Cellist, vocalist and lyricist Monica McIntyre also performed during the event, which continued in the CAC’s galleries for cocktails, cuisine by Bourbon House, a raffle for a necklace designed by CCH Pounder and a silent auction. Proceeds from the evening, sponsored by Russ and Sandra Herman, benefit the CAC’s 2015–2016 performing arts season.
