FREEDOM CABARET 2.0: HOW BLACK MUSIC SHAPED THE DREAM OF AMERICA

Lazaridis Hall, Tom Patterson Theatre
August 17 – August 28
Varying Times

After much critical success from last summer's performance of Freedom Cabaret: The Spirit and Legacy of Black Music, Beau Dixon returns with an exciting and intimate show exploring the triumphant sounds of blues, gospel, reggae, soul, jazz and the influence African American music had on western civilization during the Freedom Movement and civil rights era. Narrated through song and text, you'll hear the works of musicians, poets and activists such as Martin Luther King Jr., Stevie Wonder, James Baldwin, Harry Belafonte, Langston Hughes, Duke Ellington, Maya Angelou and many others. Join us in Lazaridis Hall as we celebrate once again the history of Black music presented by some of Canada’s most talented singers and musicians.
