CHRISTIAN MCBRIDE BIG BAND HARRY BELAFONTE HERITAGE SIGNATURE CHORALE The Movement Revisited

September 6, 2013
8:00 pm to 10:00 pm

The Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s changed America. Since that time, the movement has inspired millions of people to work for human rights causes.

In 1988, jazz bassist Christian McBride composed The Movement Revisited, a four-part suite dedicated to four major figures of the Civil Rights Movement: Rosa Parks, Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

McBride will kick off the Center’s 2013–2014 season with a new incarnation of The Movement Revisited performed by his Big Band and Washington DC’s Heritage Signature Chorale with spoken word selections by special guests, including civil rights activist and artist Harry Belafonte.
