Cabin Fever Series - I, Too, Sing America

Friday, March 23

Join Michigan Opera Threatre for I, Too, Sing America, an innovative lecture-recital that highlights the stories and achievements of African American artists and athletes who defied limitations and paved the way for integration in their fields.

This performance is presented in anticipation of MOT's May production of The Summer King, a new opera centered on the life and struggles of Josh Gibson, a baseball superstar in the Negro Leagues who was barred from playing in the majors. Through live music, poetry, narrative, and video, Michigan Opera Theatre will explore Gibson's story alongside the little-known, but ultimately unforgettable, histories of other luminaries such as Marian Anderson, George Shirley, Jesse Owens, and Florence Price. I, Too, Sing America celebrates those who have contributed to the struggle for integration and equality, and brings a wider recognition of the vibrant, parallel histories shared by the athletic and artistic communities, unifying the interests of our broader Detroit community.
