Event Description

In honor of the generations of women who have fought for humanity, equity, and justice, join us for an intimate performance by GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter Alice Smith.

Held in honor of the 80th anniversary of Marian Anderson’s historic concert on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial—a.k.a. “The Concert that Sparked the Civil Rights Movement”—Smith’s performance will take you on a journey through sound and history that centers the creativity, experimentation, brilliance, and interventions of women artists and musicians.

Raised between Washington, D.C., and Augusta, Georgia, Smith grew up on a steady diet of gospel, pop, soul, and go-go. With commanding presence and a scale-defying voice, she blends styles to create a “rock-star update on girl-group pop and ’70s soul” (InStyle). And she uses her music as a platform to generate awareness around social issues, building on the legacy of Marian Anderson and others who have lent their voices to struggles to end systemic oppression and uplift the freedom of all people.
