Event description:

Join us to celebrate Songs of Freedom, a tribute concert of American folk music for young audiences. Using poetry, historic slave narratives, a cappella harmonies and historic photographs, this show focuses on two pivotal times in American history: Slavery and the Civil Rights Movement.  In a powerful and improvisational voice, Robbi K & Friends lead the audience towards a deeper understanding and expanded perspective of our history. Families are invited to put their own voices into the lessons of history by singing freedom and protest songs like “We Shall Overcome,” “If I Had a Hammer,” and “Marchin' Down to Selma,” clapping and moving.  Feel the stories the songs tell, and sing along with these songs of freedom.
