An unforgettable exploration of how the dandy phenomenon in black society is helping to “defy stereotypes and monolithic understandings of masculinity” through clothing and style. Featuring acclaimed baritones Kenneth Overton and Jorell Williams, accompanied by renowned pianist James Davis, Jr., director of music at Abyssinian Baptist Church in New York City, this performance showcased classical art song and spirituals by African American composers and poets.
