“Standing on My Sisters’ Shoulders” Tribute to Filmmaker Joan Sadoff
Lincoln University Choir to Perform
The African American Museum of Bucks County, (AAMBC) will be presenting a special program on Saturday, January 25, 2020 from 3PM-5PM commemorating Dr. Martin Luther King’s Birthday. The event will be held at the Zlock Auditorium at Bucks County Community College, 275 Swamp Rd. Newtown, PA. The afternoon will begin with a short performance by the Lincoln University Choir, followed by a tribute to Joan Sadoff, the director and producer of “Standing on My Sisters’ Shoulders“, the award-winning documentary that tells the story of the heroic women of the Civil Rights Movement, whose valiant efforts reached from the fields of the Mississippi Delta to the floors of the U.S. Congress.
After the screening of the one-hour documentary, the renowned Lincoln University Choir will return to perform an additional selection of songs specially chosen for this occasion. The Choir has performed all over the country: at Carnegie Hall, with the New England Symphonic Ensemble, for the United Negro College Fund, and among countless churches and high schools throughout the Midwest.
Tickets to this fundraising event are $20 in advance, and $25 at the door. Tickets may be purchased online at: infoaambc.org. The AAMBC is a nonprofit 501c3 organization and all contributions are tax-deductible.
