Panel Discussion: Get Up!: Music and Black Wellness
Saturday, February 5, 2022
In this particular pandemic moment, the disproportionate impact of disease on Black and Brown people, as well as other groups who face societal detriments against them, wreaked havoc within this country and more broadly, our larger global society. When it comes to music, however, it is used to help heal, restore, and recover.
This panel discussion featuring musicians, social scientists, medical professionals, and music historians is produced by the Coalition for African Americans in the Performing Arts (CAAPA) in collaboration with the Association for the Study of African American Life and History’s (ASALH) national theme.
