About The Rondo Community & This Music Series
Beginning in the 1910s and 1920s, the Rondo Community experienced a social and cultural boom. Music and theater flourished. African-American churches, businesses, and schools set down roots, creating a strong community. The construction of Interstate 94 between 1956 and 1968 cut the community in half, displacing over 700 residents, and fracturing Rondo’s identity as a cultural center.
With the support of the Harlan Boss Foundation for the Arts the series is back for year two. Though we’re unable to gather in person, the virtual format opens up the magic of this series to a wider audience.
Walker|West creates a music learning community rooted in the African-American cultural experience, where people of all ages and backgrounds can gather, explore and grow through music.
