Come celebrate the story of Ruby Bridges, the trailblazing AfricanAmerican girl who, at age 6, integrated the New Orleans Public Schools in 1960. Pianist Darrell Grant’s cantata features the choirs of All Souls, DC, and First UU, Nashville, directed by Rev. Jason Shelton (who also wrote the choral arrangements) along with an all-star jazz ensemble (Brian Blade — drums, Clark Sommers — bass, Rahsaan Barber — sax, Cremaine «That Cello Guy» Booker — cello, Davy Mooney — guitar), renowned vocalist Marilyn Keller, All Souls Music Director Jen Hayman, and narrator Tony «Majic» Jackson. Free and open to the public. Sponsored by the UUA General Assembly Planning Committee.
