Celebrate Black Artists all season long at MPAC! Throughout Black History Month, we'll be spotlighting upcoming MPAC programs that feature Black artists and stories.



This week's highlight is The Queen of Soul: A Tribute to Aretha Franklin, coming to MPAC March 17th.



Multi-talented musician, vocalist, and composer Damien Sneed pays homage to the Queen of Soul with fresh renditions of her most cherished hits. Backed by an accomplished cast of musicians and vocalists including four-time GRAMMY® Award-winner Karen Clark Sheard of the legendary gospel group The Clark Sisters, this multi-media tribute is a tender and spiritual reflection upon the life of a music icon.

 Mary Bruno spent her childhood fearing the polluted stretch of the Passaic River near her home. Decades later, she returns to rediscover the river of her youth. AMERICAN RIVER is a cinematic adventure that follows Ms. Bruno and river guide Carl Alderson on a 4 ‐day, 80‐mile kayak journey from the Passaic’s pristine headwaters to its toxic mouth in Newark Bay. Along the way, candid conversations with residents, experts and advocates reveal the Passaic's extraordinary history, geology and ecology: How did this powerful and once‐celebrated river become one of the most contaminated in America? Can it be saved?
