Race and #Real Talk- Legacies of the Civil War: Incorporating African American Perspectives

Ongoing Opportunities

  • September 22 at 1:30 PM

Presented by the Heart of the Civil War Heritage Area as one of the monthly Porch Programs at this location, "Race and #Real Talk" features “Harmony’s African-American Legacy Organization” (HALO), an all-female African American barbershop quartet whose mission is to use the unique style of harmonic progression in barbershop singing to help communities engage in constructive dialogue pertaining to race. The 157th Anniversary of the Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation provides a springboard for the music selections and conversation.

This program is supported in part by a Maryland State Arts Council Creativity Grant. Additional support is provided by Antietam National Battlefield and Visit Hagerstown.
