Program Description

Race: Let's Talk About It...Through Song 

Part performance, part panel, part community discussion, this moving experience invites audience members to hear performances of music from traditional African, Island, and American historical songbooks, explore the lyrics and meaning behind them, then engage in a conversation about race through the lens of music and lyrics. Using the shared experience of artistic performance, the expertise of a panel of educators and experts, and the community voices in the room, the aim of the program is to create a safe and shared experience within which to learn, open discussion, and ask questions that forge bridges to understanding our diverse America, today. Hosted by Lisa Godley of WHRO’s Another View and featuring performances by Teddy Holmes, Sibel Galindez, and Dr. Anthony Hailey, along with distinguished panelists. Free to all. Seating is limited.
