June 10 – Brunch and Learn with Dr. Kathy Bullock. Presenting Singing in the Spirit: The African American Sacred Music Tradition. As she says, “Spirituals and gospel music are much more than pleasing songs to listen to—they are powerful representations of the triumphant spirit and faith that have defined African-American music and people.” Bullock takes the audience on a musical journey from West Africa, through the middle passage, to the North American shores where the African-American culture was forged. Through songs, stories, and performance, this participatory program lets the audience experience the beauty, joy, and power of this music and culture.
