Black History Month Concert!

Jonathan Emile’s Black History Month Presentation, “Songs of Freedom: Music as Reflection, Expression and a Tool for Social Change” offers students an educational and entertaining outlook of African Diaspora’s culture through an engaging and interactive presentation. Moreover, it gives students a lesson in black history while examining music as a reflection and agent of social change.
Jonathan Emile, urban poet-composer-performer and founder of “Mind Peace Love Records”, will give a 45-minute black history presentation, which includes snippets of historical music recordings from legendary artists of the African Diaspora, as well as a performance of 3 original tracks from his album “The Lover/Fighter Document”.
Students are encouraged to participate by researching Jonathan Emile and preparing questions in advance.
The Concert will take place on Wednesday, February 6th at 12:30 p.m. in the Bandring.
