Editorial Review

Denyce Graves performs a musical program in tribute to the 1962 landmark concert that introduced 25-year-old African American mezzo-soprano and 2009 Kennedy Center Honoree Grace Bumbry to America, breaking social, racial and artistic boundaries through the simple act of singing. The concert is part of the Kennedy Center's 50th anniversary celebration of its namesake's inauguration.
