We Shall Overcome - A Celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Featuring Damien Sneed

January 12, 2019  7 p.m.

Clemens Center presents
WE SHALL OVERCOME – A CELEBRATION OF DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. FEATURING DAMIEN SNEED

Inspired by the words and action of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “We Shall Overcome” showcases repertoire from across the African American music traditions that electrified generations of civil rights activists and defenders with interwoven spoken word from Dr. King’s recorded speeches.

This production ties together a living lineage of music and culture that includes traditional gospel, modern gospel, classical, jazz, Broadway and spirituals. From Aretha Franklin, to Wynton Marsalis; Duke Ellington to Stevie Wonder; Nina Simone to Donny Hathaway; and traditional spirituals and music from “the Wiz”, Damien’s unique understanding of each genre allows him to fluidly cover so much musical ground in a single performance.
