Symphony of Survival was a 2020 creative project by #EmbraceNewark, a NSH initiative with editor and creative director Jasmine Mans and Newark Symphony Hall CEO Taneshia Nash Laird.

The website included writings, footage, photos, and information about the talented artists behind this beautiful archive about the Black experience.


Created by Newark Symphony Hall, #EmbraceNewark is an artist-activated initiative facilitating resources for food distribution, personal protective equipment, wellness checks, and online artistic programming designed to engage and inform.
