Freedom Songs: The Music of Black History

Freedom Songs: The Music of Black History

On Saturday, February 8 at 11:00 a.m., Bright Star Touring Theatre will present a special performance at the Main Library titled "Freedom Songs: The Music of Black History" as part of the LIVE @ Your Library series. This program is free to the public and recommended for school-age children and older.

From the work songs of the fields of people who were enduring the bonds of slavery, to Ragtime, Jazz, R&B, and the inspired spirituals of the Civil Rights movement, this play follows the compelling story of the role that music played in the history of Black Americans. Meet incredible Americans like Scott Joplin, Billy Holladay, Little Richard and more in a tale that is sure to intrigue audiences of all ages!

This program is made possible by the generosity of the Friends of the Gaston County Public Library.
