Freedom Songs: The Music of Black History - performed by Bright Star Touring Theatre. "This hit musical revue is one of our most sought after productions. Join our energetic actors in this entertaining musical revue to the history of Black Music! From the work songs of slavery ("Hoe Emma Hoe") and the hymns of the Underground Railroad (Follow the Drinking Gourd") to the Blues of Beale Street and the anthems of the Civil Rights Movement, music has always been an integral part of our nation's past. In this production, our actors sing/tell the stories behind these famous and forgotten hymns, work songs and musical styles while sampling songs that spread across continents, genres and centuries."
