GLORY DAYS-IN-CONCERT: a musical tribute to the African American experience
Inspired by my book, Glory Days: 365 Inspired Moments in African American History, Glory Days-in-Concert, is multimedia performance piece for church or college choir, actors, and dancers. Deciphering the words and haunting melodies of the Spirituals (now known to have been codes of the Underground Railroad); we bring that legacy forward through gospel, soul, jazz and HipHop. A rousing multigenerational tribute to the ancestors and modern-day spirits in this time of #BlackLivesMatter.
