In this interactive performance P. Ann Everson-Price not only celebrates pioneers from the Jazz era of Swing to the soul-wrenching styles of Gospel and the Sounds of Motown, but explores the historical context of their music. Through a speed round of historical trivia, students will learn about the challenges facing immigrants, the Auction Block, the Underground Railroad, and Prohibition.
