On January 25, we welcomed ESPN’s The Undefeated and Grammy-nominated recording artist Aloe Blacc to Monticello to produce a music video—a first in our history as a museum!—that will air throughout February on ESPN and Disney Platforms in honor of Black History Month.
The Undefeated is a digital platform that explores the intersection of sports, race, and culture. Aloe Blacc performed his own rendition of “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” accompanied by The String Queens. It was an exciting time for all.
Monticello provides an inspiring setting for this song and video, and affirms our commitment to sharing diverse stories in American history.
