Intersection is honored to partner with Fisk University and Choral Arts Link to lead this community celebration to honor the life of Dr. King and the many heroes of the Civil Right Movement. Through music, spoken word and song we will recognize that while Dr. King was indeed the face of a great social protest, many people “orchestrated” strategies, meetings, sought resources and the like. And, that these unsung heroes, worthy of celebration, were indeed the wings beneath Dr. King’s wings. This year’s performance features the world-premiere of a newly commissioned work by composer Jonathan Bailey Holland exploring race, equity and youth, the Nashville premiere of a work by Joel Thompson and additional repertoire performed by Choral Arts Link and Fisk Jubilee Singers.. Join us for pre- and post-show conversations in partnership with Nashville Public Library’s Civil Rights Room.   

Moderator: Cecilia Olusola Tribble, Community and Organizational Development Coordinator for the Metropolitan Nashville Arts Commission
Composers: Jonathan Bailey Holland and Joel Thompson
