About the Event

Grammy Award-winning Sweet Honey in the Rock is the African American female a cappella ensemble with deep musical roots in the sacred music of the black church—spirituals, hymns, gospels—as well as jazz and blues. The Sweet Honey experience is like no other. Six African American women join their powerful voices, along with hand percussion instruments, to create a blend of lyrics, movement, and narrative that variously relate history, point the finger at injustice, encourage activism, and sing the praises of love. The septet’s words are simultaneously interpreted in uniquely expressive American Sign language.
