Songs of Hope and Inspiration: The Hidden Meaning of Spirituals

September 17, 2016
7:00 p.m.

Please join us for a memorable evening of story and song. The Arise Ensemble of Wichita, Kansas will sing the old style spirituals such as "Follow the Drinking Gourd" and "Wade in the Water," tell the stories behind them and share the secret messages they held for the slaves who sang them. These songs and the information they convey have been all but lost to history. This acclaimed choir will lift your spirits, inspire, inform and entertain you. Funded in part by grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Arkansas Humanities Council, Arkansas Black History Commission, Greenwood Schools, Greenwood Education Foundation and Greenwood A & P Commission.

Admission: Free.
