The Black Legacy Project is a musical celebration of Black history to advance racial solidarity, equity, and belonging.
The Black LP is a national project produced by Music in Common - a nonprofit that strengthens, empowers, and connects communities through the universal language - in partnership with community stakeholders at the local level. As it travels the country, the Black LP brings together Black and White artists and artists of ALL backgrounds to record present day interpretations of songs central to the Black American experience and compose originals relevant to the pressing calls for change of our time. Community roundtable discussions help inform how these songs are interpreted and written.
The Black Legacy Project launched in September 2021 in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts and will travel to Atlanta, Los Angeles, the Mississippi Delta, Denver, the Arkansas Ozarks, and Boise in 2022 - 2023. Hit us up to learn how you can get involved and bring the Black LP to your community.
