One Voice Mixed Chorus presents Resistance and Resilience: Voices of the People
Resistance and Resilience: Voices of the People explores how voice and song have been utilized in two human rights movements from the African American and LGBT communities. 400 years ago, the first African slaves set foot in North America, later paving the way for influencing human rights movements across the globe. Act I will draw from spirituals, blues, hip hop, and other songs from the civil rights movement. Act II will feature the Midwest premiere of Quiet No More, which tells the story of the Stonewall Uprising and honors the lives of those who rose up and began the modern LGBT movement 50 years ago.
