Equal parts live performance, lecture, and revival meeting, this presentation is a way of experiencing the impact of Black music on American culture, identity, and social progress. Through his wealth of experience working with groups of all ages and his unique blend of down and dirty blues, socially conscious soul, and spirit-fueled gospel music, cultural activist and musician Eric Dozier shines a light at the crossroads of music and American race relations.
He performs songs and discusses key musical figures and themes from the abolition, civil rights, labor, and antiwar movements, as well as other contemporary voices of change. These songs, and the stories that surround them, offer vivid insight as a crucial ingredient in these struggles for progress and unity. By the end participants understand what it means to be an active and creative advocate of diversity and equity.
One-hour presentation followed by 30 minutes Q&A.
RSVP to join the discussion. While capacity for the webinar is limited, the Museum plans to stream the discussion on YouTube as well. For questions regarding registration or logistics for the event, please email Janette Hoffman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
