Adult Formation Class: The Spirituals in Faith Formation
Negro spirituals have continued to be a source of fascination in American musical history for nearly two centuries, though they have existed in some form since the first enslaved people were brought to America. Although difficult to classify, they are the first American folk music, born of African traditions and traditions of Europe. Tracing the history from slavery through reconstruction to the New Negro renaissance, we'll explore how Black Americans created a national identity rooted in faith through song. What do these sacred songs mean? What do they say? What do they teach us about Christian formation? Led by Lisa Williamson.
