The Black Legacy Project is a musical celebration of Black history to advance racial solidarity, equity, and belonging. The Black LP is a national project produced by Music in Common - a Berkshire-born nonprofit that strengthens, empowers, and connects communities through the universal language, recently honored as 2022 CNN Champions for Change. The Black Legacy Project launched in September 2021 in the Berkshires, with much of the recording taking place at the Guthrie Center. From the Berkshires, the project traveled to Atlanta, Denver, the Ozarks of Northwest Arkansas, Los Angeles, Boise, and the Mississippi Delta, bringing together Black and White artists and artists of ALL backgrounds in week long residencies to record present day interpretations of songs central to the Black American experience and to compose originals relevant to the pressing calls for change of our time. Community roundtable discussions helped inform how these songs were interpreted and written. Beginning in September 2023, along with the release of the debut album, Vol. 1, a touring band brings the songs of the project to audiences nationwide through interactive, engaging, and powerful live performance. Come join us where it all began for this special album release show.
