We Shall Overcome—A Celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (featuring Damien Sneed)

February 21 @ 7:30 pm

$10 – $35

Damien Sneed—vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, and conductor—delves deeply into the full range of African American music in We Shall Overcome. Jazz, classical, Broadway, gospel, and spirituals are woven together with the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s speeches to exemplify a living musical tradition that continues to inspire, uplift, and challenge us. “In the realest sense,” says Wynton Marsalis, “[Sneed] uses his artistry to make our world a better place.”
