NOW LET ME FLY: Songs of Freedom and Transformation 

Music can be a universal expression of protest and a powerful agent of change. In this concert, it gives voice to the heroic figures portrayed by William H. Johnson in the exhibit, Fighters for Freedom: William H. Johnson Picturing Justice. Listen for hidden messages in songs of the Underground Railroad, hear new songs of freedom and transformation, and lift your own voice in call and response.

Johnson exhibit, on display now through August 7, 2022.
