Syncopation: Life in the Key of Black
February 2, 2013 @ 3:30 pm - 8:00 pm$10
There is the official history of Canada’s music industry, and then there’s the actual history.
From its beginning, the intriguing history of Canadian music has been told largely by−and for−a White population. For too long the accomplishments of individuals such as Cy McLean, Syd Blackwood, Alf Coward, the Wright Brothers and many others have been overlooked. Time for an accurate retelling. This fascinating photo exhibition and accompanying biographical sketches, Syncopation: Life in the Key of Black sets the record straight.
Syncopation: Life in the Key of Black celebrates the achievements, recognizes the struggles and solutes the underappreciated contributions of countless Black entertainers.
On display at the gallery during Black History Month 2013
Tickets are $10 and available only at the door.
