This February, Flushing Town Hall is celebrating Black History Month with the return of its Black History Trilogy, a three-part series featuring outstanding performers paying tribute to influential African-American musicians, entertainers, and musical traditions:

Third Stone from the Sun - A Tribute to Jimi Hendrix
Saturday, February 12, at 7pm
The musical genius of Jimi Hendrix is recreated on stage by Jimy Bleu

The Black King of Vaudeville - Remembering Bert Williams in Song
Sunday, February 20, at 7pm
Tony-nominated actor Larry Marshall (Jesus Christ Superstar, Hair, Porgy & Bess) rejuvenates the life and music of Bert Williams, one of the pre-eminent entertainers of the Vaudeville era, and one of the most popular comedians for all audiences of his time.

The Power & The Glory - Music of the Black Church
Thursday, February 24, at 7pm
Award-winning Broadway veteran Tina Fabrique (star of Ragtime, Bring in da’ Noise, Bring in da’ Funk, The Wiz, Bubbling Brown Sugar, Gospel at Colonus), pays homage to Gospel spiritual music that remains a staple of African-American life today. Gospel originated from Black spirituals, slave songs, and white hymnody, and it emerged in tandem with ragtime, blues, and jazz.
