Thread Name: African American Secular Folk Songs
Subject: RE: African American Secular Folk Songs
Great thread, Azizi. I have to admit to not reading all of the technical stuff about songs that have been covered so far (I blame my Attention Deficit Disorder... my eyes start to glaze over when the discussion gets technical). I was wondering if you have been tracing songs that were used as a way of communicating information about the Underground Railroad. I am sure I have read somewhere that songs and/or rhymes were used for this purpose.
