Black Pearl Sings!Wed 06/28/2023 - Sun 07/30/2023
In 1935 Depression-era Texas, two women from very different backgrounds discover the other holds the key to everything they’ve each been searching for. Susannah is an ambitious Library of Congress musicologist, determined to record undocumented slave songs. Pearl is an African American woman with a soulful voice, a steely spirit, and a sentence in a high-security female prison. Pearl’s memory is a treasure-trove of unrecorded slave era music, but can she hand over her ancestors’ songs without giving up something of herself? Black Pearl Sings! tells the evocative story of an unlikely bond, preservation of musical heritage, and the human need for hope and healing.
