Black History Month: The Bonner Family

The eight Bonner siblings and their parents are talented vocalists and musical artists who unite their family through their shared love of gospel music and their African-American heritage.

Their music is featured in the film Jane and Emma, on Mormon Channel, and in their recently released album. Join them for an interactive history lesson on African-American music illustrated by songs, folklore, and oral traditions dating from ancient West African times to today. The presentation will feature songs and sounds from the slavery era, as well as spirituals, blues, jazz, and interactive songs and stories with the audience.

By combining, juxtaposing and redefining ordinary objects and cultural icons, I hope to initiate a visual conversation with the viewer..
