Journey

FEBRUARY 2020

Intersection will explore the connections between the 19th Amendment and the Civil Rights Movement through the music and story of Florence Price and excerpts from Nkeiru Okoye’s Opera Harriet Tubman: When I Crossed That Line to Freedom. Florence Price was the first African-American woman to be recognized as a symphonic composer and Harriet Tubman became an activist for women’s suffrage in her later years. Throughout the month of February, Intersection will be working with partners such as Fisk University, the Civil Rights Room at the Nashville Public Library, Choral Arts Link and Douglas Shadle, a Florence Price historian, to present musical performances and discussions. These events will connect with Upon These Shoulders, an annual community arts collaboration and will also kick-off Intersection’s 2020 initiative LISTEN, a year long project celebrating the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and lifting up the voices of women.
