Lift Every Voice and Sing: Classic Music of Black America

A standard of musical excellence central to the historical identity of blacks in the United States is gospel music as interpreted initially by slaves imitating music heard from their slave masters’ churches. Today black gospel music is the foundation upon which is built the blues, jazz, rhythm and blues, soul, hip-hop… On exhibit in the Voices & Choices Center Gallery is a pictorial montage of the music’s roots and offshoots.

Also see a bibliography of Rohrbach Library resources on this topic.

This exhibit supports the Kutztown University Performing Artists Series’ concert by The Dirty Dozen Brass Band and The Dixie Hummingbirds on Thursday, April 6, 2006.
