“Rap and Redemption on Death Row”
March 5 @ 5:00 pmFree
Hosted by the University of Miami Frost School of Music
Robert Kelley Memorial Distinguished Lecture in Musicology
Join Dr. Mark Katz, John P. Barker Distinguished Professor of Music, as he explores the life and work of Alim Braxton, aka Rrome Alone, a rapper on North Carolina’s Death Row. For Braxton, music is the key to self-therapy. Using the prison telephone as his microphone, he collaborates with producers on the outside who record his vocals and provide beats for his rhymes.
The purpose of this talk is twofold: to introduce a musician who seeks both redemption and justice through his music, and to offer reflections on the ethics of a white, privileged scholar working with a Black man awaiting execution. This talk will be given with Braxton’s knowledge and with his permission.
