The Hammonds House Museum has created a digital platform to connect with audiences beyond the walls of the museum. Throughout June, Hammonds House Digital will explore the work of black classical composers, modern spoken-word poets and family-friendly storytelling. At 4 p.m. this Sunday (June 7), the museum will host the Black Classical Muse program, a concert of African American composers. Dr. Dwight Andrews, associate professor of music theory and African American music at Emory University, will provide historical context. Admission is free for museum members and $7 for nonmembers. To RSVP, click HERE. (This event has been rescheduled to July)
At 8 p.m. Friday (June 12), Hammonds House Digital will present Felton Eaddy’s Poetry Kitchen. Eaddy has hosted the program for three years and this reading marks the first time it has moved online. Featured poets include Eboni Holmes (Blak Sis), Ahmariah Jackson (Anon the Griot), Sherry J. Williams and April Wright. Admission is free for museum members and $5 for nonmembers.
