For the African Diaspora, music is political, music is social, music is historical. It is the tradition of oral history the and the continuance of community. From the griots of West Africa, to the toasters of Jamaica and the MCs of the Bronx, telling the story in rhythm and song is a long standing African tradition.
Love Is: A Dialogue w. the African Diaspora is offered as a conversational workshop. Participants are gathered to discuss the nuanced influence of Black experience on matters such as mental health, body image and religion, to name a few. Conversations are guided using lyrics from songs picked from the large library of Black music.
