STR8 Up Frederick Douglass
Str8 Up Frederick Douglass in Rhythm, Rap and Jazz is a hip-hop exploration of the life and legacy of this prophet and freedom-fighter. Featuring original content, music and dance inspired by his words and determination, six artists, under the direction of Founder and Artistic Director Deborah Asante with the Asante Art Institute of Indianapolis, use their creativity to campaign for a brighter future for all. This experience is recommended for ages 8+. Performances take place in the museum’s auditorium.
After the performance, visit the exhibit Influencing Lincoln, the Pursuit of Black Freedom, celebrating the unsung heroes of the Black community – connected through church, business, family, military, education and politics – who influenced Lincoln and helped pave their path to freedom.
This program is a great addition to scheduled field trips!Register
