Memory in African American Music and Culture: An Extravaganza

West Long Branch — "Memory in African American Music and Culture: An Extravaganza," a Monmouth University Race Conference Event including verse, negro spirituals, contemporary gospel music and opportunity tunes will be held Thur., Nov. 14, 6-8:30 p.m. at Wilson Hall Auditorium.

The night highlights exhibitions by Daryl L. Stewart, Leah Joy Hilliard, Solomon Cobbs, Donna J. Violence, and The Rushing Singers.

This occasion is a night that incorporates verse and the singing of some exemplary Negro spirituals, just as contemporary gospel music.

Culture has been the essential area of dark personality development in U.S. history. As a reaction to mistreatment, and the forswearing of chance, African Americans went to verse and music to record their complaints, triumphs, and distresses.

African Americans have recorded and memorialized the dark involvement with verse and music from the principal appearance of Africans in North America to the present.

Tunes, for example, "Take Away" and "Swim in the Water," later performed by the Fisk Jubilee Singers, guided oppressed blacks on the underground railroad to opportunity in the North; and, tunes, for example, "The Busses Are A Coming" or "Ella's Song," made during the stature out of the Civil Rights time, were performed by the Freedom Singers to lift resolve in the battle for dark balance during the 1960s. Recollections of anguish and celebration exist in dark social creations from Negro Spirituals to the present.
