Fantastic Negrito

June 10 @ 8:00 PM PDT

Fantastic Negrito

Fantastic Negrito’s upcoming album “White Jesus Black Problems” was inspired by learning that his 7th generation grandmother was a Scottish indentured servant who entered into a common law marriage with an African American enslaved man, his 7th generation grandfather, in open defiance of the racist laws of 1750’s colonial Virginia. The resulting work is part love story, part historical excavation, an extraordinary and exhilarating ode to the power of family and the enduring resilience of our shared humanity. The collection is bold and thought provoking, grappling with racism, capitalism, and the very meaning of freedom itself, all without ever losing sight of the desire and determination at the heart of the tale.
