Louder Than

An interactive celebration of black words + music.

Louder Than is a cultural event that will celebrate African-American songs and words that have brought us through the years. From the powerful words of Baldwin, to the haunting melodies of Simone, Louder Than will stir the soul and lift the spirit. This performance will feature the music of Marvin Thompson Jr. along with vocalist Ayana Thomas. Guests are invited to be a part of the Louder Than Community Ensemble, who will perform a medley of songs from the Civil Rights era.

Whatever is to come, our voices must be louder than hate, louder than fear, and louder than our past.

This event is free and open to the public. Click below for free tickets.
