Celebrate Black History Month with Music and Dance – “The History of African American Music”- (One show only!)
February 7 @ 7:30 pm
Presented by Northglenn Arts. A collaboration between the Colorado Black Arts Festival and the SOURCE Theater Company this is the first installment of a three part series. The show covers the period from the 1600s to the early 1900s, taking the audience on a musical journey from slavery to prohibition. Slave music, field hollers, work songs, lullabies, spirituals, songs of the Underground Railroad, Ragtime and the Blues provide a compelling soundtrack to U.S. history. Since the contributions of African American music to American music are so vast, this project will be presented in three installments over the next couple of years. The audience should plan to return next year to enjoy the second installment.
