Singing in the Spirit: African and African American Music Connections
October 16 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDTFree
Spirituals and gospel music are much more than pleasing songs to listen to – they are powerful representations of the triumphant spirit and faith that have defined African American music and people. In this class we will take a musical journey from West Africa, through the Middle Passage, to the North American shores where the African American culture was forged. Through songs, stories, and performance, this participatory program will invite the audience to experience the beauty, joy, and power of this music and culture.
