Black Wall Street is a staged concert about complex relationships in the work place, the contemporary politics of money and the nature of ambition. Created and performed by Alicia Hall Moran, Black Wall Street depicts a history of Black American finance in New York City and beyond. With humor, poignancy and depth, Moran makes a musical, poetic adventure of the office. Jazz, rock, classical, and Indian Carnatic musicians join Moran to explore commonalities and intersections of the streams of narrative – expressed and unexpressed – and the streams of history – known or unknown to us – that we each bring to work with us everyday.
Alicia Hall Moran is the daughter of an African-American former Wall Street CEO and New York City editor and publisher.
