The History of African American Music

February 7 - 14, 2020

A Collaboration Between The Colorado Black Arts Festival & the Source Theater Company
This first installment of a three part series, covers the period from the 1600's to the early 1900's, taking the audience on a musical journey from slavery to prohibition. Along the way, the audience will be exposed to slave music, field hollers, work songs, lullabies, spirituals, songs of the Underground Railroad, ragtime and the blues.
The history of black music is diverse and engaging, and provides a compelling soundtrack to U.S. history in general. Since the contributions of African American music to American music are so vast, this project is presented in three installments over the years - telling the audience to be sure to come back next year to enjoy the next installment.

This is a program for all age levels.
