The Dream Unfinished: #SingHerName

  • The Great Hall of Cooper Union 7 East 7th Street New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

Inspired by #SayHerName, Sing Her Name is a musical tribute to black women impacted by racial injustice, and female activists and organizers of the Historic Civil Rights and #BlackLivesMatter movements. Sing Her Name will be held on July 13, 2016, to mark the one-year anniversary of Sandra Bland's passing. In addition to musical selections, Sing Her Name will include appearances by notable figures such as Terrance McKnight, Gina Belafonte, Helga Davis, and others. Our conductors this year will once again be James Blachly, founder and director of the Sheep Island Ensemble and the Experiential Orchestra, and Grammy Award winner John Mclaughlin Williams.
