Adam W. Sadberry: “Musical Journalism”

This is a concert inspired by Adam W. Sadberry’s late grandfather and unsung hero of the Civil Rights Movement, L. Alex Wilson. Wilson’s work as an editor and journalist changed the world through covering pivotal Civil Rights events including the lynching of Emmett Till, the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the desegregation of Central High School by the Little Rock 9, the last of which played a part in Wilson’s transformation into a martyr. In this concert, Adam intertwines articles that he collected from the archives of the Tri-State Defender, Wilson’s newspaper in Memphis, Tennessee, with music that contextualizes the humanity and inhumanity of the stories.

Adam will be joined on stage by pianist Dr. Artina McCain and clarinetist Dr. Andre Dyachenko.
