Conceived and curated by poet and artist Carl Hancock Rux, I Dream a Dream That Dreams Back at Me is an experiential site-specific event celebrating the Juneteenth emancipation. Vocalists Nona Hendryx, Marcelle Davies-Lashley, and Kimberly Nichole perform original music by Vernon Reid and Nona Hendryx, with lyrics by Lynn Nottage; followed by a deconstructed National Anthem, sung by Helga Davis. Unfolding across Lincoln Center, the performance ends with a full-length concert by the rock and roots musician Toshi Reagon and her band BIGLovely. The size, scope and impressive talent inherent in this celebration of Black excellence emphasizes America’s ongoing struggle for greater equity. As Rux says, “we must realize that we all need to be emancipated before we can collectively get to The Other Side.”
