As part of the Skokie Library’s “Love Beyond Freedom” celebration of Juneteenth and beyond, join Crossing Borders Music on a string quartet musical journey from slavery to our shared human future. With music by historic, contemporary, and emerging African-American composers highlighting impactful turning points in African-American history, this is an inspirational concert that everyone will enjoy!
(If you want more:)

Crossing Borders Music is a multicultural organization of color that shares the stories and music of those whose voices are suppressed because of race, ethnicity, disability, gender, sexual orientation, other identity, or related trauma. We do this through free, accessible performances in community spaces in service and affirmation of our communities and collaborators.

(and if you want still more:)

Performed by Caroline Jesalva and Jennifer Leckie, violins; Wilfred Farquharson, viola; and Tom Clowes, cello; featuring music by Jessica T Carter, Jordyn Davis, Thomas “Blind Tom” Wiggins, Carlos Simon, and more!
