In a bridge connecting the university and nation’s present with its past — and a clear-eyed look at racial injustices that are still perpetuated today — UofSC music faculty perform works commissioned for the 2018 unveiling of the Cooper Library statue dedicated to Richard T. Greener, the university’s first African American professor and the first Black graduate of Harvard.  By Valerie Coleman and Jeff Scott, two of the country’s leading African American composers, “Glory” and “A Pioneer’s Opus” celebrate Greener’s life and legacy, setting his own words, original poetry, and Langston Hughes’ “Let American be America Again.”

This outdoor concert for a limited audience, held at the Russell House Patio Stage not far from Greener’s statue, will be socially distanced.  The audience will be required to wear face coverings.
