I see our PBS station is giong to show a brand new documentary, tonight, called I Can Tell The World. Here's the info AND you can reserve your DVD copy:

Without the spirituals, there would be no gospel, blues, jazz, R&B, or hip-hop and rap. And though many of us are familiar with some of the songs - Wade in the Water, Go Down Moses, This Little Light of Mine, and Oh Freedom - few of us fully understand the deep history, complex origins, and coded messages of a music born in slavery.

I Can Tell the World is the first documentary about the original American music. It follows members of an interracial, multigenerational choir committed to the preservation and performance of African American spirituals. As these diverse men and women share their stories of transformation, we learn how the experience of shared song can help heal a nation still wounded by racism.


Should be good!

Thanks for the heads-up, Kat. This being Black History month, all sorts of good stuff is usually around. I sing with a black Men's Chorus and we're always busy this month. We do a lot of spirituals.
