American music is deeply rooted in the musical traditions of African American culture. Through the joyful act of singing, we can embody the values embedded in these songs and gain greater understanding of how this music influences political and social struggle and creates community.

The music covered in this workshop and information about its history and significance is taken with permission from Singing in the African American Tradition by Ysaye Barnwell, Ph.D. (formerly of Sweet Honey in the Rock) with George Brandon, Ph.D.
