For centuries, music has been a fundamental part of black church tradition. Per Henry Louis Gates Jr., noted Harvard historian, “The Black Church was the cultural cauldron that Black people created to combat a system designed in every way to crush their spirit and the [musical] culture..." Rev. Larry T. Crudup, PhD, is the key presenter with specially curated songs featuring the Barnett Family Singers. A Q & A will take place at the end of the performance.
