When Folksongs Bring Freedom

Uploaded by Hilliard Greene

These uniquely American heritage songs are recognized as a distinct musical genre. The music that will be featured is based on the coded Negro spirituals that runaway slaves used to elude capture. Selections will include: Swing Low Sweet Chariot, Wade in The Water, Deep River, Go Down Moses, Michael Row De Boat Ashore, and I Couldn’t Hear Nobody Pray
