“Black history is the stuff out of which the black spirituals were created …to understand it is to know the being of a people who had to feel their way along the course of American slavery.”

This small masterpiece shows how two forms of song—the spirituals and the blues—helped sustain slaves and their children in the midst of “a powerful lot of tribulation.” – The Christian Century
