A sung celebration of urban, suburban, and rural life—its moods, landscapes, and sounds—“This Land Is Ours” features music by classic American composers, and also by immigrants, women, and other historically marginalized American groups. Pride, wonder, comfort, bewilderment, and excitement—regardless of what we feel, this land is ours. Composer B.E. Boykin, faculty member at Spelman College, joins Mirror Visions Ensemble to discuss her song “Secret”, a setting of Gwendolyn Bennett.
Preceded by a 1:15 pm tour of Afrocosmologies.
