African American Cultural Ensemble (AACE)

As part of the Katherine L. White Invitational Choral Festival, we are excited to have the African American Cultural Ensemble perform in the Kay White Hall. The Northwest African American Museum’s President & CEO LaNesha DeBardelaben envisioned and created Sounds of Light Ensemble, formerly the African American Cultural Ensemble, during the racial reckoning of 2020 and early 2021. The deep hurt, pain, and trauma moved NAAM, an institution that is committed to justice and equity. These recent times have collectively brought us all as a society pain, sorrow, fatigue, anger, and bewilderment. However, meeting these feelings with heart-stirring inspirational music can give way to a determined and forward-facing resolve to “never allow despair to have the last word.”
