In the early 20th century, African-Americans created a cultural movement called the Harlem Renaissance. Through music, dance, and words, artists, writers, politicians, and pastors made the case for equality. Raisin’ Cane brings that kaleidoscope of voices to the stage. Award-winning actress Jasmine Guy portrays 30 characters as she sings, dances, and embodies voices of the time while the Avery Sharpe Trio offers an original evocative jazz score. Journey with us to explore what this creative and intellectual explosion gave to America.
