Lincoln & the Jews/Words and Music: at KAMII

Sunday, February 23, 2020 28 Shevat 5780

3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

KAM Isaiah Israel's Words and Music series continues with a fascinating look at how Jews have sung about Abraham Lincoln's legacy. Dr. Thomas Kernan, Assistant Professor of Music History at Roosevelt University and Scholar-In-Residence at the Newberry Library has uncovered incredible musical memorials that tell a story about our complex identities as American Jews. With music by well known composers like Naomi Shemer, Irving Berlin, and Kurt Weill as well as lesser known figures such as Sam Raphling and Elie Siegmeister, Dr. Kernan will lead us in a surprising and rich journey through history, poetry, and music.

KAMII is located at 1100 E. Hyde Park Blvd.
