      EVENT DETAILS
      Bodies at Risk: Black Violin

      Black Violin is led by classically trained string players Wil B. (viola) and Kev Marcus (violin). The band uses their unique blend of classical and hip-hop music, often described as “classical boom," to overcome stereotypes and encourage people of all ages, races, and economic backgrounds to join together to break down cultural barriers. As part of their engagement, Wil and Kev offer a special live virtual concert followed by a post-show conversation on the state of Black music and art in the US today moderated by African American studies scholar Stephanie Shonekan.

      Bodies at Risk is a series of creative conversations between BIPOC performing artists, educators, activists, and other experts working to shift American society’s understanding of the racialized body and social justice. These events aim to engage, move, and surprise audiences through artistic demonstration and intellectual curiosity. Artist and audience chat included in each event.

      Cost: Free, but please register online.
