A CELEBRATION OF DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.

Lynn's Pick Inspired by the words and action of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., We Shall Overcome showcases 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 gospel, classical, jazz, Broadway and spirituals. From Aretha Franklin to Wynton Marsalis; Duke Ellington to Stevie Wonder; Nina Simone to Donny Hathaway, and more, producer and star Damien Sneed’s unique understanding of each genre allows him to fluidly cover so much musical ground in a single performance.
