Black History Month at 92YTribeca


  • Enjoy your celebration of Black History Month at 92YTribeca with a Shabbat Dinner on Fri, Feb 5. Afterwards, Joshua Nelson, “The Prince of Kosher Gospel Music,” will perform a special concert in our mainstage. Kosher gospel is a way for Nelson to claim both parts of his identity as a Black Jew.
  • On Wed, Feb 17, we invite to enjoy a free screening of The Quiet One, with a 16mm film print from the collection of the New York Public Library. Made in cooperation with the Wiltwyck School for Boys, at Esopus, NY, this docu-drama is an account of a 10-year-old emotionally disturbed boy who is unwanted, misunderstood, and inwardly tortured.

  • And Sat, Feb 20 brings Nomadic Wax Presents African Underground, a full night of African Hip-Hop, film, conversation and live music featuring Meta and the Cornerstones. First, a screening of Fangafrika: The Voice of the Voiceless: A stylized look at the festival in Ouaga, in Burkina Faso, where Africa’s best and brightest rappers gather using hip hop to tackle the serious issues facing Africans everywhere.

    At 8:30pm there will be panel discussion: Marketing African Media in the New Millennium: About the Intersection of Technology, Digital Media and its Impact on the African Continent.

    And finally, Meta and the Cornerstones take the mainstage, featuring members from across Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, and fusing Afropop, reggae, hip-hop, and serious soul with a mixture of French, English, Wolof, and Fulani vocals. It’s a night of thought and celebration not to be missed. Purchase tickets here.
