A Story Foreword takes listeners on a journey through the African American experience from the 1500s to the present. It’s part cinematic hip hop album, dance opera, and multimedia project released in remembrance of the 400th anniversary of the uninterrupted history of African Americans — starting with the first documented arrival of at Point Comfort in Hampton, VA, in 1619.

The project remembers the sacrifices of a people but also celebrates their resilience, creativity, innovation, and global influence in the face of centuries of injustice and inequity.

Upon release of the album, a companion digital book will be available. While the album can be enjoyed as a standalone project, the book not only includes production notes but also scene summaries and relevant essays. For those who wish to dive into the experience further, the book offers informative and fascinating educational history based upon over 10 years’ of Jammes Luckett’s own research — it is designed to correct myths and re-written history with information that is factual and accessible.
