Lift Every Voice: The Connections between African American Poetry and Music (Lift Every Voice Program Series)

African American poetry has deep connections with performance and music. Lift Every Voice and Sing, the perennially popular song, began as a poem. Join us to learn more about the interconnections of poetry and music with Greg Dewhirst, D.M.A., TCC Professor of Music.

This program is part of Lift Every Voice: Why African American Poetry Matters, a national public humanities initiative of Library of America presented in partnership with The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture with generous support from The National Endowment for the Humanities, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and Emerson Collective.
