A talk by
Robert G. O’Meally
with music organized by
Christine Correa (vocals), Olivia Harris (voice),
Kanoa Mendenhall (bass), Dayeon Seok (drums) and Andrew Boudreau (keyboard)
This evening’s multiform presentations reflect on Homer’s fatally alluring Sirens as refigured by the African American painter Romare Bearden,
whose Odysseus and musicians are people of color. Collaborating on Robert G. O’Meally’s talk on this subject will be the singer Christine Correa
and her gathering of jazz voices and instrumentalists, performing songs of political intervention and deep love—songs to die for.
