Having been commissioned by the Apollo Theatre and premiered in May 2016, this innovative and inspiring collaboration pairs text by the virtuosic speaker, scholar, and activist Dr. Cornel West with compositions by Arturo O’Farrill for the Grammy Award-winning Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra. Inspired by the innate musicality of West’s words, this performance brings together big band jazz, Latin music, and the power of spoken word activism. This exciting collaboration bridges the soulful connection of music and inspiration of social change.
