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.
Alva Anderson, voice

Redemption Song, Bob Marley
Now Let Me Fly, Traditional
Underground Railroad (lyrics by Alva Anderson and LaToya Reneá), John Coltrane
