Berkshire Community College, Pittsfield, MA
September 23, 2022

Music in Common, a Berkshires-founded nonprofit that strengthens, empowers, and connects communities through the universal language of music, celebrates the one-year anniversary of the launch of The Black Legacy Project, a musical celebration of Black history to advance racial solidarity, equity, and belonging. The Black LP travels the country, bringing together Black and White artists and artists of all backgrounds to record present day interpretations of songs central to the Black American experience. 

Since the September 2021 launch, Music in Common has produced ongoing Black Legacy Project programming in the region including a Black LP concert at the Colonial Theatre, a series of film screenings throughout the county, and a week-long course at Berkshire School. The upcoming anniversary celebration includes a combination of all of these.

On Friday September 23 at 7:30PM, a Black LP concert featuring a host of local musicians including Rob Sanzone, Rufus Jones, Bryan House, Glori Wilder, Terry a la Berry, Olivia Davis, Liam Giszter, and Brianna Nicola
