Come and experience the sound of 1963! Behind every movement, is a soundtrack that mobilizes and inspires the leaders to the soldiers. From “Freedom Now” to “Keep on Pushin,” music has always been a reflection of our social landscape.

 

Join us as we present a millennial response to the year explored through music featuring Blitz the Ambassador & Abiodun Oyewole from The Last Poets & an 18-piece orchestra. Along with a visual experience that is sure to leave you reflecting on our past. Re-live the classics with new arrangements that were popular a few years prior to the year, during the year and immediately following.

 

The music of 1963 was the soundtrack to a transformation. It inspired generations of African descendants to reclaim their humanity. The spirituals of the past brought faith and courage; pop tunes were an escape from harsh realities; and truth-tellers sang with a soulful defiance that electrified the Civil Rights Movement. The music of '63 still resonates with piercing clarity. “ – Chen Lo, curator of Soundtrack ‘63
