Carolina Chocolate Drops’ electric, genre-bending singer/instrumentalist Rhiannon Giddens, described by The New York Times as “a perpetually soulful marvel,” joins forces here with folk singer/songwriter Bhi Bhiman and cellist/singer Leyla McCalla. In this impassioned concert they delve into the profound yet too often overlooked history of protest, subversion and cultural resistance by musicians of color in the United States, from the original inhabitants to recently arrived immigrants. This performance celebrates Black History Month.  This performance is presented in collaboration with The Sonja Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History and the Center for the Study of the American South.
