The story of the Black West sheds light on American History in this musical storytelling piece featuring renowned jazz vocalist/guitarist Allan Harris and the cast of Cross That River.
A quarter of the cowhands in the West were Black. A Harlem composer found a way to honor their history. During these racially charged times in the United States with the focus on racial discrimination across the country, Cross That River takes audiences on a musical journey into why Black Lives Matter. Cross That River represents a significant moment in American history where Black Cowboys lived and helped settle the West. It is a story that’s never been told in this way. The unsettled West of the 1860s provides a new life and new dreams for Blue, a run-away slave, who escapes from slavery to Texas to become one of America’s first Black Cowboys. This compelling tale of freedom integrates fiction with historical fact, and each song presents a different page in this complicated chapter of American History.
The story of Blue begins in Louisiana, and with every song of this highly-infectious score, the audience is moved further along on Blue’s harrowing journey across the Sabine River to freedom in the Wild West. Each song tells a unique story, at times joyful, sometimes tragic, but mostly a poignant chronicle of enduring perseverance. Award-winning musician, Allan Harris wrote Cross That River to tell the untold story of the Black West and empower Americans with an inspiring story of hope and freedom. Educational outreach is an important component of this thrilling and relevant musical tale that performed for a multiple week Off-Broadway run to great critical acclaim.
