Slave Spirituals and the Jubilee Singers by Michael L Cooper

Book Description

Many slave spiritualssongs such as Swing Low, Sweet Chariot, Michael, Row the Boat Ashore, and Go Down, Moses have become interwoven into the fabric of American culture. For centuries these deeply moving songs were sung by slaves as they worked in the fields. In 1871, six years after the end of slavery, a group from Fisk University known as the Jubilee Singers toured the United States and abroad, raising money for their bankrupt school and, more important, bringing slave spirituals to the attention of a wide audience. This engrossing account, illustrated with archival prints and photographs and appended with the words and music to seven songs, tells the inspiring story of the Jubilee Singers and reveals spirituals to be an invaluable and unique history of American slavery."
