The Black History of Prince
Mon, October 24, 2016, 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM BST
Part of Waltham Forest Black History Month curated by Black History Walks.
Prince was a musical genius who died way too soon. We celebrate and remember his legacy via this interactive presentation and review of his musical career using video clips, sound bites, interviews and audience participation. Although it is not well known, Prince was a huge Black history fan with an extensive library. He also used his art to promote human/civil rights and was involved in the Black Lives Matter campaign.
We will showcase his activism, consciousness, politics and philanthropy and other information neglected by mainstream media. We will also cover:
- Is there a war against 'conscious' Black artists ?
- Worth more dead than alive? Who gets the money?
- Artists he influenced or mentored
- Conspiracy theories real or imagined ?
