“Emancipation Again”

“Emancipation…Again” is a civic, educational and artistic exploration of the legacy of freedom. This web-based, global collaboration will bring scholars, artists, educators, and K12 students together in a variety of forums to share their unique experiences on Emancipation. Musicians and educators in the US, West Africa, and Europe will create joint works of music and art that combine their unique views of their common history…the Atlantic Slave Trade. By sharing these views in music, writing, drama, and visual arts, we can all get a more complete picture of our global heritage. Furthermore, we seek to take the former triangle of slavery and bondage and transform it into a triangle of creativity and global collaboration.
