      Dreambox Presents - Philadelphia Heritage Art Ensemble

      We are pleased to present the Philadelphia Heritage Art Ensemble on November 13th at Drummers in Philadelphia. This group was founded by trumpeter Fred Adams, who has worked with Jimmy Merritt, Odean Pope, Al Grey, James Blood Ulmer, Charles Gale and spent 22 critically valuable years as a member of the Sun Ra Arkestra, and consists of pianist Adam Faulk, bassist Tyrone Brown, trombonist Brent White, tenor saxophonist Anthony Ware, drummer Craig McIver and poet Desta Adams.

       

      This Arts and Activism concert's theme will be "Rebirth of the Redeemers," which refers to the post-Civil War Southern whites who adjusted their culture of coercion to the new circumstances by forming the KKK, white citizens' councils, and legislating Jim Crow. Adams sees the rise of the Alt-Right and white nationalism since Trump as a resurgence of the Redeemers of the South. There will be a talk back after the concert by Dr. Herman Beavers, poet and professor of English & Africana Studies!

      Cost: 10.00
