Reception following the concert.
Kelly will sing three songs from a growing cycle entitled We Hold These Truths. 
Included in the set is Margaret Fuller's Freedom & Truth, an unfortunately timely topic, along with a setting of the inscription on the Statue of Liberty by Emma Lazarus, and the premiere of Give Her the Fruit of Her Hands, the most recent third song. The text pictured here is from a painting by Evelyn Ramsey Cary. It appeared on the back cover of "The Woman Citizen" in January 1918, and was used to promote women's suffrage.
