Black Music: The Soundtrack of Humanity
A special program in celebration of Juneteenth
Co-hosted by the Ohio History Connection
Join us in celebration of Juneteeth as we explore Black music with two renowned performers and educators. Dr. Ted McDaniel and Dr. Mark Lomax III will discuss Black music as a continuum and reflect on spirituals and blues related to the foundation of global music. In addition, they will talk about music as a symbol of resistance during the late 1800s and beyond. Dr. Lomax will share selections from his collection, 400: An Afrikan Epic, that directly relate to Juneteenth.
