Black History Month: Meet Sujari Britt

Child prodigy Sujari Britt made history at age 9 by becoming one of the youngest to ever perform for a President in the White House when she performed the first movement of Luigi Boccherini’s Sonata for Two Cellos in C Major with 27-year-old Alisa Weilerstein in 2009.

Britt attends the Manhattan School of Music where she was named the 2010 recipient of the Dianne Flagello Precollege Division Scholarship Endowment. She can also be found performing with her sister, Joelle and brother, Sunnaj in a classical string trio. With such a jump-start on performing, as well as overflowing with an abundance of talent, dedication, and poise, there’s little doubt that a long career for Sujari Britt is on the way.

What does Sujari think of Black History month – well she had this to say ““I think that one of the most important lessons of Black History Month is that all people can achieve and succeed. I celebrate this idea by working to do my best in all that I do, every day,” said the musical prodigy to theGrio. “President Obama inspires me to believe that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s ‘Dream’ can come true!”
