Full Tour Info
JUNO-nominated singer-songwriter Khari Wendell McClelland has retraced the steps of his great-great-great grandmother Kizzy and has recreated the music that likely underscored her escaped to Canada through the Underground Railroad. Crossing genres and generations, Khari beautifully remixes the rhythms and folklore of early African-Canadians with contemporary sounds and stories of struggle and liberation. From the award-winning documentary theatre company behind The Middle Place and Small Axe, Freedom Singer asks: can "vibrations of the past" bring us closer to the truths and freedoms we may be seeking today?
Project: Humanity is thrilled to announce that along with its Toronto premiere, the show will also tour across the country, supported by TD and their Black History Month programming. Full Tour Info
