BE-SPOKEN with Emorja Roberson DMA '22

BE-SPOKEN is a musical work written by Emorja Roberson DMA '22 and collaborative artist Anthony Walker. It explores the stories of Black people in America through spoken word, gospel, and hip-hop. The featured artists are Chavis T Gill, Anthony 'Tony' Walker, Donishisa Ballard, and 2021 Grammy winner Ledisi!

These incomparable guest artists are supported throughout the evening by a rotating lineup of a community choir, guest and backup singers, a six-piece band, and a string quartet. Experience the breadth and depth of the African American music tradition through BE-SPOKEN.

Let our stories be told. May our songs be sung. Hear our words be spoken.
