Four Hundred Years of Inequality
A People’s Observance for a Just Future
Carnegie Hall is proud to participate in Four Hundred Years of Inequality: A People’s Observance for a Just Future, a nationwide initiative exploring the ongoing repercussions of slavery and inequality and the ways these forces shape our lives today. This project marks the 400th anniversary year of when the first Africans sold into bondage landed in North America. Using the power of music to tell stories and create understanding, Carnegie Hall will partner with other organizations to present performances, talks, and workshops.
Throughout the education and social impact programs of the Weill Music Institute, New Yorkers of all ages will explore the legacy of inequality in our country. The 400 Years of Inequality initiative has created a curriculum that invites young people to reflect on inequality and consider a just future. This curriculum will be included in this season’s Music Educators Workshop, and will also be the inspiration for a number of events for students and young people this fall.
