The Message is in the Music: The African American Experience Through Song

November 16, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Tuesday, November 16, 7-8 p.m.
UIndy Hall A (Schwitzer Student Center)


You’re invited to the third event in a series of programs around identity, marginalization, and societal ramifications during the 2021-2022 school year.

The University of Indianapolis’ “Making Our Way Home” series amplifies diverse viewpoints & prescient issues, while incorporating Yaa Gyasi’s novel Homegoing throughout the school year for a chorus of authenticity.

In “The Message is in the Music: The African American Experience Through Song” Ted Frantz Ph.D., History and Political Science department chair, Iman Tucker MBA, UIndy alum & owner of Believe Brand Co., and others will highlight how music can serve as a catalyst for resistance, change, and revolution.  Their talk will tackle the power of creativity to challenge authority, will include song snippets, and have a question-and-answer portion.

The conversation will be held in UIndy Hall A in the Schwitzer Student Center on Tuesday, November 16th from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.

All guests are asked to abide by University policies regarding masks and distancing.

Finally, this program has been made possible through a grant from Indiana Humanities, in cooperation with the National Endowment for the Humanities, and from The Indianapolis Foundation, a CICF affiliate.
