...And Deborah Cox Will Be There!

Welcome to episode 8 of Minnesota Opera’s podcast THE SCORE! On this week’s episode, it’s June and we're all vaxxed up and ready see our people again. So we think it's high time for a little bit of celebration after such a long, dreadful year! First up, it's Pride Month all over the world, so it's time to give it up for all of our precious, beautiful LGBTQIA+ siblings! This week we’re having a good old-fashioned kiki at the top of the show with a chat about what Pride means to those of us sitting here at the intersection of Black and queer. Next, we turn the show over to Lee, who recently moderated a panel conversation, presented by The Dream Unfinished and The Harlem Chamber Players, called "Remembrance and Restitution." Lee talks with history professors Ashley Jackson, Ashleigh Lawrence-Sanders, and Jasmin A. Young all about the Tulsa Race Massacre as well as another upcoming celebration - Juneteenth - and their impacts on the past, present and future of Black Americans everywhere. And then, of course, as always we’ll send you into the weekend with a PB&J. This week we've got some local Black artists and a mighty engine for social justice that could use your support! Thanks for joining us and HAPPY PRIDE!!! 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️
