1619: A Commemoration in Sound

When: Mon., Dec. 16, 7:30-9:30 p.m. 2019

1619: A Commemoration in Sound is a remembrance event to mark the 400th anniversary of the first arrival of enslaved people from Africa in the North American British Colonies—the beginning of slavery in what would become the United States of America. African descendants’ virtuosic negotiations with Western tonality and forms, as well as cosmopolitan explorations of different sounds, aesthetics, and cultures, have shaped vital contributions to the art, music, and dance of America. Featuring Dr. Whitney Slaten, T.K. Blue Quintet, Souleymane Badolo / Kongo Ba Téria, and the art of James Ransome.
