The performance explores agency, voice, and the power of place.
The program, taking place in the Great Hall at Faneuil Hall, is a part of Revolutionary Spaces Raising Voices Festival: A Celebration of Music, Art, and the Power of Protest. Commemorating the 250th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party, Raising Voices is a multi-disciplinary arts festival in the heart of downtown Boston that celebrates the power of protest throughout history.
For more than 250 years, Faneuil Hall has opened its doors to dialogue and debate centered on the founding questions of this country — What does liberty mean? Who is included— or excluded— in our visions of liberty? Using the "Cradle of Liberty" as a platform, generations have grappled with these questions and responded with their own answers. BLACK in the cradle of liberty continues this tradition by sparking thoughtful, compelling conversations about the complexities of our past and our hopes for the future during the 250th anniversary of the American Revolution.
This program is made possible through a partnership among the National Parks of Boston, the Mayor's Office of Arts and Culture and the Museum of African American History, with generous funding from the Mayor's Office and the National Park Service Civil Rights Interpretation & Education Fund.
