Live Review + Gallery: Moor Mother: Red Summer at BRIC (05.09.19)

The 2019 edition of Red Bull Music Festival in New York continued with a special performance of “Moor Mother: Red Summer” at BRIC in Brooklyn, NY on Thursday, May 9th. The show revolved around “Red Summer,” where racial terror against black people occurred in multiple cities in the United States in 1919, exactly one century ago. Moor Mother (Philadelphia musician and artist Camae Ayewa) enlisted cellist Tomeka Reid, ONO (of Chicago), Brooklyn rapper ELUCID, pianist Claudia Amine Meyers, Ayewa’s free jazz group Irreversible Entanglements, and others for the performance that began promptly at 8:15PM and ended three hours later.

Audience members were given a printed zine created by Moor Mother and Rasheedah Phillips (which is available digitally here) placed on their seats and a commemorative fan that has the same art of the performance stage that indicates the dates and locations across America where the Red Summer violence took place.
