Composer Glenn McClure
"Emancipation Proclamation: freedom and music in today's world."
Composer Glenn McClure speaks about transforming the triangle of slavery and exploitation into a new triangle of creativity and global understanding through music.

“This anniversary provides a unique platform to ask ourselves what emancipation means today,” said McClure. “Singing these texts allows them to resonate deep within our minds and bodies and reminds us of how far we have come in the struggle for universal freedom, and how far we still need to go.”
