LIFT EVERY VOICE: MOSAIC SINGERS IN CONCERT

Known for upholding the highest standards in vocal performance, this show delivers the sound and quality that the Mosaic Singers are internationally recognized for and celebrates the rich history of black music from Africa and the Caribbean to present day America through genres such as spirituals, ragtime, the blues, jazz, gospel, rhythm and blues, rock, soul, hip-hop and other American music forms, uplifting the contributions and innovations that mark the music and the history of African Americans.

FOUR LITTLE GIRLS: BIRMINGHAM 1963 (Available beginning February 2020)

Every child imagines what they want to be when they grow up. The four little girls who attended the 16th Street Baptist Church were no exception.

This play with music centers on Denise McNair, Carole Robertson, Cynthia Wesley, and Addie Mae Collins, four little girls who are multi-talented and bursting with promise and who share their hopes and dreams against the backdrop of the civil rights movement. While Denise dreams of becoming a doctor, Carole looks forward to the dress she will one day wear at the cotillion, Cynthia imagines her life as a mathematics professor at the local university and Addie Mae envisions a life as a professional baseball player. The realities of the segregated political climate that will put a stop to these dreams swirl around them and eventually culminate in the fateful events of September 15, 1963.

This searing drama dares to examine what it’s like to be a child in the most extreme circumstances.

ITS LIT! A CELEBRATION OF AUTHORS OF COLOR
