Kings and Queens
Performed by Ronya-Lee LaVaune Anderson

Friday, November 16, 2018 at 7:00 PM

Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium

Kings and Queens is a multi-disciplinary project designed to highlight the contributions of African-American artists to the beloved musical genre: Rock n’ Roll. The project will combine monologues, live music, projections, dance and discussion honing in on artists such as Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Jimi Hendrix, Big Momma Thorton, Bo Diddley, Louis Gordon and others. Beyond noting the practice of cultural appropriation, the project will illustrate the influence of black musicians on their white successors like Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and Led Zeppelin, generally considered the greatest rockers. In workshop and performance Kings and Queens links the lives and legacies of black and white artists, the richness of their synergy lost due to racial discrimination and ignorance.

She holds a Master’s of Divinity from Duke Divinity School in Durham, North Carolina, a B.A. in Dance and a B.A. in English Language and Literature from the University of Maryland at College Park.
