Voices for Freedom -- The Hyers Sisters' Legacy

Executive Producer, Director, Writer: Susheel Bibbs, M.E.P. Productions/DKC,Inc.

We are delighted to bring you this fascinating award-winning documentary about two extraordinary sisters, accomplished and popular singers of color whose careers in classical music began just after the American Civil War and extended well into the difficult Post-Reconstruction era. These young women risked their successful operatic careers by standing up for Black dignity, integrating casting, and popularizing what became the very first American musicals. That these young, highly-acclaimed Black singers established quite a legacy at that time in American history is remarkable enough, but for their names to remain mostly unknown is sadly notable as well. 

 

As part of DGF's efforts to share the stories of America's hidden musical figures, we are offering this 30-minute film on our website for a limited time*. If you love opera, American/Black history, theater, or true stories of commitment and conscience - watch Voices for Freedom -- The Hyers Sisters’ Legacy and tell your friends! Winner of nine international film awards, this is a story like none other we've come across so far....
