Negro Spirituals are sung along with a historical narrative, which brings enlightenment to the suffering and struggle of the slaves. Hymns are performed with audience participation.
Mahalia Jackson, Paul Robeson, Andrae Crouch, Thomas Dorsey and the composer of “Oh Happy Day”, Edwin Hawkins, are just a few of the artists whose music will be performed with a narrative of their time period.
