Continuation of a Dream: The Dream Reimagined...
A radically diverse, radically interdisciplinary and radically BLACK concert experience in honour of NEC alumna Coretta Scott-King.
NEC’s Black Student Union has an annual tradition of honoring Mrs. Coretta Scott-King through various programming throughout the month of February. This year part of that programming will include a tribute event titled "Continuation of a Dream: The Dream Reimagined...”, a celebration of Black history and music in a multi-disciplinary concert experience featuring music, dance, art, and spoken word.
The performance will be radically diverse, radically interdisciplinary, and radically BLACK. We hope that attendees of the event leave with a disrupted understanding of what a music conservatory is and what a space of creating art should be in today's America—diverse, safe, experimental, and exciting. We will have student performances across all disciplines within NEC as well as collaborations with students outside of the school.
This evening will feature student performers as well as Boston Poet Laureate Porsha Olayiwola. Porsha is a writer, performer, educator and curator who uses afro-futurism and surrealism to examine historical and current issues in the Black, woman, and queer diasporas.
Join us as we celebrate the legacy of Mrs. Scott-King as well as the African Diaspora.
Free and open to the Public.
