The Grammy Museum and the National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM) are partnering with Rosedale Collective and Propper Daley to present the 1st Annual Rosedale Summit: Country’s Reclamation & Promising Future in Nashville on Nov. 8.
The event will feature a series of performances and conversations that celebrate and recognize the art of BIPOC country musicians of the past, as well as spark conversation around country’s future. The Summit’s Host Committee is led by the Board of Nashville Music Equality.
Conversations will take place in both Los Angeles at the Grammy Museum and in Nashville at NMAAM, providing attendees the opportunity to explore the history of country music with Frankie Staton and historians as they focus on the major contributions of people of color in the genre.
In a panel with Rissi Palmer, Valerie Ponzio, and others, the event will also feature dialogue about how country can lead in the racial and social justice conversation. The summit will also highlight the work of upcoming BIPOC country music artists such as Tony Evans Jr., Gabe Lee, and Autumn Nicholas.
Additionally, country music singer, founder of the Black Country Music Association, and cardiologist Dr. Cleve Francis will receive the 2021 Hazelhurst Award which celebrates an unsung influence on BIPOC country music’s past.
The Summit will begin at 6:30 p.m. CT on Nov. 8. For more information, click here.
