Stories of Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated People, Reflected in a Soul-Stirring Album
What does healing look like, and in what ways does the American carceral system obstruct it? How can we care for each other through seasons of pain? These are just a few of the questions that musician, filmmaker, and composer Samora Pinderhughes has been unpacking over the past decade. Pinderhughes, who studied at Juilliard and is currently a doctoral candidate in Harvard’s School of Music, regularly focuses on social change through his work, which includes The Transformations Suite, a 2016 project that combined music, theater, and poetry to examine the history of resistance within communities of the African Diaspora, and Black Spring, a 2020 collection of songs that took inspiration from ’60s protest music to address the current cultural and political climate.
