INFO

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum proudly presents an evening that will entertain and educate through the memories and powerful singing voice of the daughter of a music legend. Maggie is the daughter of the late lyricist and performer Oscar Brown Jr. and has been using her talents for thirty years to not only further her father’s musical legacy, but to inspire a greater sense of responsibility for the positive outcome of our future.
 
“In 1991 I embarked on creating a stage piece that would “edutain” my audience with music and my own dramatic reflection on the history & evolution of African American music,” says Maggie. “The show is called ‘Legacy: Our Wealth of Music.’ It is the vehicle through which I can sing, narrate and demonstrate my love for a wide range of music styles.”
