This musical adventure uses powerful storytelling, historical facts and vocal performance to trace the creation and development of the Negro Spiritual as a distinct American Art Form. Spanning the 1600s to the present, Dr. Naima Johnston-Bush uses her dynamic voice to present a historical musical lecture that explores the impact of song to build faith, sustain hope and launch movements that spurred a nation to challenge oppression and overcome adversity.

For adults.
