Join us for an evening of conversation about the impact music has on our lives and an exploration of how the music of America intersects with our country's history. The evening will include musical performances.

Rhiannon Giddens is a Grammy Award-winning musician, singer-songwriter, playwright, historian and MacArthur “Genius Grant” recipient whose work defies definition or genre. Giddens’s lifelong mission is to lift up people whose contributions to American musical history have previously been erased, and to work toward a more accurate understanding of the country’s musical origins. Pitchfork has said of her work, “few artists are so fearless and so ravenous in their exploration,” and Smithsonian Magazine calls her “an electrifying artist who brings alive the memories of forgotten predecessors, white and black.”

Allison Russell, is a musician, poet, singer, songwriter, and activist. She is an extraordinary artist of power, empathy, and grace. In 2021, she released her debut solo LP, Outside Child, hailed around the world as one of 2021’s best and most essential new albums. Outside Child is a heartbreaking reflection and powerful reclamation of her childhood.
