Gifts to the African American Arts Institute's IU Soul Revue on IU Day will help fund experiences that allow students to study African American rhythm and blues music throughout the 20th and 21st centuries.
Since 1971, the IU Soul Revue has delivered crowd-pleasing shows, and has helped to facilitate the professional careers of its ensemble members. For example, the current Soul Revue director, Crystal Taliefero, has noted that the IU Soul Revue was one of the major turning points in her early musical career. Taliefero, who was a member of the ensemble as an IU student, has returned to IU after performing alongside acclaimed musicians such as Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, and John Mellencamp, an Indiana native and Bloomington resident.
IU’s Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs (OVPDEMA), and the IU Soul Revue invite friends and alumni to consider a gift that will allow students to showcase their talent as performers, and demonstrate IU’s commitment to preserving and promoting African American culture. Your donation will fund experiences associated with performance opportunities. To learn more about the IU Soul Revue, please visit: http://www.indiana.edu/~aaai
