"Let no one contaminate your mind."

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.
