Boston Children’s Chorus (BCC) presents Inheritance, a musical exploration of the underrepresented history of slavery and its impact in the United States. In her acclaimed podcast series, 1619, Nikole Hannah-Jones of the New York Times states, “they say our people were born on the water; when it occurred, no one can say for certain.” Performing Spirituals, Work Songs, and contemporary choral music, BCC examines the Inheritance of a peoplehood across 400 years of song.
