On Point host Meghna Chakrabarti moderates a conversation with Rhiannon Giddens. Giddens is a Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, MacArthur Fellowship recipient, and artistic director of social-impact organization and musical ensemble, Silkroad. She wrote the music for the ballet “Black Lucy & the Bard” (aka “Lucy Negro, Redux”) and the libretto and music for her original opera, “Omar.” In October 2022, Giddens published “Build a House,” which celebrates Black history and culture in her unflinching, uplifting and gorgeously illustrated children’s picture book. Copies of the book will be available for purchase from our bookstore partner Brookline Booksmith and Giddens will sign following the conversation.
