The Black Legacy Project, a musical celebration of Black History, has released the debut album Black Legacy Project Vol. 1. The twelve songs featured on Black Legacy Project Vol. 1 are part of a curated compilation of noteworthy cover songs along with meaningful originals, all relevant to the profound need for positive change.
In addition, a live version of the Black Legacy Project will be embarking on a tour in select markets, which will bring the songs of the project to audiences through an interactive, engaging, and powerful live performance.
The Black Legacy Project launched in September 2021, partnering with communities nationwide to promote transformative dialogue crossing racial and political divides. The first areas to participate were The Berkshires/Western Massachusetts, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Denver, The Mississippi Delta, the Arkansas Ozarks and Boise. Enlightened by those conversations, Black LP brings Black and white communities together to reimagine new versions of songs central to the Black American experience and to compose new works that highlight the urgent need for understanding and action.
For its groundbreaking work, CNN honored the organization as a 2022 Champion For Change. Watch the inspiring CNN piece here.
