“Reflecting on the past...Reaching toward the future, II” – an African American Music Conference Concert

“400: An Afrikan Epic”

  1. Saturday September 14 7:30pm
Earl V. Moore Building, Britton Recital Hall

Performed by the Mark Lomax Quartet.

The program is both a performance of the suite from the 400, a 12-album cycle that was released in January 2019, and a discussion among the audience and the performers. The music and discussion explore Black America in pre-colonial Afrika, the Ma’afa (the 400 years between 1619 and 2019), and Afro-futurism, a vision of community strength and unity in the next 400 years. The purpose is to engage students, faculty, staff, and artists in an experience that educates, entertains, and informs, and also inspires and uplifts the human spirit through the power of music. The work was presented to a sold-out audience at the Lincoln Theatre in January 26, 2019.
