Exploring the musical legacy of Prince and beyond
After a tumultuous year, the Minnesota music scene has its eye on rebuilding. The Current is launching LineCheck, a series of virtual conversations with the Minnesota music community about how to make sure we're not just returning to a new normal, but coming back even better than before.
Songwriters and artists have often used their art to influence social change. As unrest broke out in the city of Minneapolis in the wake of the killing of George Floyd, Minnesota musicians turned to their creative outlets as agents of change. We'll talk to artists about their activism through music and explore its impact on our community.
Facilitator: Anastasia Ellis
Panelists: Maria Isa, Muja Messiah, Nur-D
Performer: Sounds of Blackness
LineCheck is made possible in part by the Minnesota Legacy Amendment's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
