This week Jé Hooper, our summer Intern Leader, will reflect on how using music can tame the beast of our past. The African American musical tradition from spirituals to blues to gospel and early rhythm and blues has encapsulated human existence in its fullness — its need for love, community, and reconciling.
What songs have carried you through a series of events or offered a new perspective? What chorus gave you the opportunity to utilize your voice unapologetically? Come enjoy a song, a lyric, and a musical platform that will soothe the soul.
We start the formal program at 11:00 and usually end about 12:30. After that, we have a time of informal conversation with some beverages and snacks. Please feel free to bring some snacks to share!
