13Feb Play Reading/Discussion: Black Pearl Sings:Playwright Frank Higgins 12pm
Frank Higgins’ play is set in Depression-era Texas and, while based on some of the early musicologists’ collecting folk songs, imagines a meeting between a White musicologist from the Library of Congress and a jailed African American woman with a powerful voice. Their subsequent relationship shows that they both are carrying a great deal that forges a strong relationship. Presented by Alliance for New Music-Theatre, LOC Folklife Center and LOC Daniel A.P Murray Association.
