For centuries, Black artists have used music as a form of protest and to bring people together to fight for freedom. For this Live Wire event, Apollo Fellow and arts curator Justice Robinson explores political performance from the 19th century to the present day and the systems within which Black entertainment exists.
The Apollo’s Live Wire series was created to spark deeper insight and consideration of the contribution of Black arts and culture to the broader American canon. These electrifying events feature discussion with unpredictable and impromptu performative elements that shed new light on the timely topics of today. This program will be taking place on the Apollo’s Soundstage.
