SONGS ON OUR ROAD TO FREEDOM

  • Date: 02/13/2019 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM  
  • Location: Old Town Hall
    3999 University Drive
    Fairfax, Virginia 22030
  • Introduction: This interactive storytelling & musical experience explores the stories that were embedded into music for safekeeping, the secret codes hidden in the songs and how the songs transformed into the freedom songs of the Civil Rights era.
Is an interactive program designed for all ages. This program is a ‘WE THE PEOPLE’ story in song. Experience America’s music from Spirituals, Freedom Songs, Jazz, Blues, Folk, Country, Protest Songs, Songs of Hope, and Songs of Love. FREEDOM has always been a powerful thought for Americans, and music brings that thought of freedom to life.  Thomas Jefferson proposed in written word a purpose and direction for our nations principles. Music created by humble unknown slaves, and well known songwriters helped us feel that purpose with passion and dedication to ensure our nations principles belong to all of us. Come join Calvin Earl as he leads us in inspiring songs in our American History!
