Harlem Renaissance featuring Jasmine Guy and the Avery Sharpe Trio!
Don’t miss this celebration of the sounds of the Harlem Renaissance featuring the Avery Sharpe Trio! By the 1920s, Harlem had become the heart of the African-American community in New York and the home for an outpouring of artistic expression known as the Harlem Renaissance. In an extraordinary performance, renowned actress, singer, and dancer Jasmine Guy, along with the acclaimed Avery Sharpe Trio, honors these legendary artists who struggled against racial inequality, prejudice, and segregation. Weaving together text, song, movement, and imagery into a panoramic experience, Guy and the trio transport audiences to this prolific period through the voices of Langston Hughes, Countee Cullen, Zora Neale Hurston, and W.E.B. Du Bois. Ms. Guy is well known for her extensive work on stage, film, and television, including her starring role the sit-com, A Different World. Mr. Sharpe is considered one of the greatest jazz bassists of his generation.
