We are told to our faces often that though our quartet is one of the best that has been heard up here, they would like us better if we would "play the Nigger" - their own words - more... every day we are made to understand that if there was less refinement about us and more fool, we would do better... When I have about three persons ask for the [spirituals] and about four score ask that we dance and sing songs which tell of Negroes stealing chickens, I make no pretensions to try to please - Tuskegee Quartet member Isaac Fisher, in a letter to Dr. Booker T. Washington, c. 1900

'The Black Church' - PBS Documentary airing 2/16/21
« on: February 12, 2021, 07:46:34 AM »
Hi all,
Just saw a notice about this from my local PBS station and thought I'd share:

"The Black Church: This Is Our Story, This Is Our Song from executive producer, host, and writer Henry Louis Gates, Jr. traces the 400-year-old story of the Black church in America, all the way down to its bedrock role as the site of African American survival and grace, organizing and resilience, thriving and testifying, autonomy and freedom, solidarity and speaking truth to power. Tune in or stream Tues., Feb. 16 at 9/8c."

Thanks for the tip, I watched part of this tonight and it's excellent, I learnt a lot and the music is great.
I recommend it.
