RING SHOUT

A Time To Shout!

November 3rd : 2:00 – 3:30 pm

Ring Shout with UNC Charlotte Dance & Music Students

 

This is a FREE event, but please reserve your spot by clicking here.

UNC Charlotte dance and music students will perform African American Ring Shout, a movement and music tradition historically rooted in Africa and created by enslaved people in the Carolinas and Georgia. Still practiced today, Ring Shout is the oldest African American performance tradition. An expression of religious fervor, cultural solidarity, and social resistance, its legacy includes a vast repertoire of Black American music and dance.

Presented at Historic Rosedale, where enslaved and free African Americans lived and worked on the land, in coordination with its African American Legacy Project, the event will also pay homage to the enslaved persons that labored the land. Guest artist Rosangela Silvestre will perform a piece in honor of the land, Ewe.

This project is funded by the UNC Charlotte College of Arts + Architecture as part of its New South | Global South initiative.
