Curated and directed by Carl Hancock Rux, I Dream a Dream is a commemoration of the 156th anniversary of Juneteenth, unfolding across Lincoln Center. The evening begins with a musical introduction featuring vocalists Nona Hendryx with Étienne Lashley and The Collective, performing a song by Gordon Chambers commissioned for this event, alongside original songs by Vernon Reid and Hendryx with lyrics by Lynn Nottage and costumes by Dianne Smith.
