Oh Freedom! is a special concert and cultural journey through the history of African Americans from pre-slavery to modern times using song and music, performed by members of the Kentucky Opera. An inspirational demonstration of the ability of music to preserve and share history, the program begins with music from West Africa and travels through time to include coded spiritual songs sung by enslaved people and ends with music that inspired the Civil Rights Movement. The title Oh Freedom! is inspired by the spiritual of the same name and was a favorite among Civil Rights activists.
This event is made possible by a grant from the Horseshoe Foundation of Floyd County.
