About this Event

Queen Nzingha Lecture 145. A musical journey covering the hidden history and links between some of the most popular and obscure musical forms. Hip Hop is a billion dollar world wide industry and cultural norm while Opera is seen as an elite art form, but what do both of them have to do with Negro Spirituals ? Dr Kimberley Hawkins will take us on an audio-visual tour including live opera singing, 'lining' and rap samples.

  • Negro Spirituals; a form of resistance, decoded
  • African roots of Opera
  • Voice as a weapon
  • Life as a Black Opera Singer
  • Civil Rights in Music: The many untold stories
  • Plus Q & A .

This is an online talk at 6.30pm UK time and will be delivered via Zoom. The Zoom link will be sent 45 mins before the start please check your JUNK MAIL. Part Two is delivered on Saturday 22nd May at 6.30pm
