Negro Spirituals: A workshop / Discussion on the Historical Context
November 16, 2017 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Join CFAC to discuss the Afro-American experience as it relates to the so-called African American slaves. We will be examining the people, How they lived and how they survived. It is believed by some that the Negro Spirituals were much more than songs as we know them today. We will talk about the spirituals and how they were used from a musical perspective. The spirituals both instrumentally and vocally have been performed by some of the greatest musicians in the world.
