LINCOLN THEATRE COMMUNITY CONVERSATIONS SERIES TO EXPLORE “HERALDS OF THE HARLEM RENAISSANCE” OCTOBER 26

 

The Lincoln Theatre’s Community Conversations is a free series designed to generate community discussion on a variety of interesting questions surrounding the arts. In the 1920s, our nation experienced an influx of African-American literature, art, and music of such undeniable quality that it served as a catalyst for racial pride and challenged the pervading racism and stereotypes of the day. On Thursday, October 26, the Lincoln Theatre’s Community Conversation “Heralds of the Harlem Renaissance” profiles individuals that helped pave the way for the resulting cultural, social, and artistic explosion known today as the Harlem Renaissance.

 

This 90-minute, multi-media presentation will be interspersed with discussion from Dr. Ted McDaniel, professor of African-American music at The Ohio State University; Dr. Valerie Lee, interim chair for the OSU Department of African-American and African Studies; Jack Marchbanks, Lincoln Theatre Association board member and co-host of WCBE’s “Jazz Sunday;” and Suzan Bradford, general manager of the Lincoln Theatre. The speakers will also serve as panelists in the Q&A session to follow.

 

“Heralds of the Harlem Renaissance” will be held at the Lincoln Theatre (769 E. Long St.) on Thursday, October 26. Doors open at 5:30pm. The program will begin at 6pm. Admission is free.

 

This program is made possible through the generous support of Donna and Larry James.

About the Lincoln Theatre

First opened in 1928, the Lincoln Theatre is a landmark in African-American and jazz history. After undergoing a $13.5 million renovation funded by a partnership of public and private support, the Lincoln reopened in May 2009 as a multi-use, state-of-the-art performing arts and education center serving the diversity of the central Ohio community. The Lincoln is a bustling hub of activity 365 days a year hosting performances, rehearsals, and classes in the performing arts, as well as a wide variety of community events such as film festivals, meetings, and receptions.
