The Black Legacy Project is a new groundbreaking album created by Black American artists that celebrates Black history and promotes racial justice. The Black LP is the launch of Past. Present. Forward. - a series of truth & reconciliation and bridge-building albums that feature artists of diverse backgrounds.
The Black LP integrates virtual Round Table discussions among Black Americans from across the country and across generations to revisit, analyze, and discuss songs central to the Black American experience. From these conversations, Black artists reimagine and record modern-day interpretations of the songs as well as compose originals addressing the pressing issues and calls for change of our time.
The Black Legacy Project is produced by Music in Common under the artistic direction of MIC Fellows, Olivia Davis and Trey Carlisle, accomplished musicians and songwriters.
