Voices Heard is a series that will highlight intergenerational expressions of visionary Black women expanding artistic dimensions through music. Many have been creatively energized by the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM), a Chicago-based collective that has made incredible contributions to contemporary music around the globe. This event will feature multi-instrumentalist/composer Shanta Nurullah in duo with renown vocalist/composer Dee Alexander, live interviews and the unveiling of video footage revealing ideas, inspirations, and challenges some of these women share. Supported by the Doris Duke Foundation, and in partnership with the Logan Center, this event is the pilot for Voices Heard 2016, which will culminate on December 10-11 at The Promontory.
