CO-PRESENTED WITH 21c MUSEUM HOTEL
Black Gold: A Lullaby is a Nina Simone-inspired musical experience performed by Cincinnati-raised, Columbus-based pianist and vocalist Sharon Udoh, based on Ms. Simone's 1970 album, Black Gold.
With this performance, Sharon reflects on her personal relationship with Nina and how her music accompanied all the personal revolutions of her thirties. Sharon also explores how Nina affected her own self-perception of race and gender, and discusses Nina's absence in her life in tandem with Breonna Taylor’s absence; her connection to these two women, her sisters, that she never knew.
With this work, Sharon asks, how do Black women thrive, push, grow, and trust? And how do we rest?
