Birmingham Revealed: A Slippery Slope – The Consequences of Hate

April 21 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Vulcan Park and Museum will once again host its educational after-hours series for adults – Birmingham Revealed. A Slippery Slope: The Consequences of Hate is a musical performance that includes original poetry and scores by Deborah Layman, BHEC Vice President of Development, and Dr. Alan Goldspiel, chair of University of Montevallo’s Department of Music. The performance by The Seasoned Performers will include readings from personal testimonies of Holocaust survivors. Joining Dr. Alan Goldspiel on guitar are violinist Marilyn Pipkin and featured vocalist Gabriel Tajeu. The performance is a combination of the traditional Klezmar melodies from Eastern European Jewish culture and African-American spirituals. The music and readings together are used to parallel the struggles of Alabama’s Holocaust survivors and the Civil Rights Movement. Tickets are $8 for Vulcan Park members and $10 for non-members.
