A day of celebration, a day of remembrance, a reminder of the work we still need to do towards a just society.
I started the day by listening to “We Insist! Max Roach’s Freedom Now Suite,” performed by Fresh Cut Orchestra and Melanie Charles, hosted by Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center back in February. I wasn’t able to attend in person, but my goodness, what a performance. I especially love “Tears for Johannesburg.” Take a listen.
