“I am a graduating senior currently attending Spelman College. Entering my last semester as a Biology Major, I have aspirations of attending Graduate School or entering industry at Genentech. During my time in Survey of AA Music, I found it very challenging to be musically inclined. This class has helped me learn more about the origins of AA music and more connected to my roots”

From their start in 1871, the Fisk Jubilee Singers have always combined their humanitarian spirit and passion for music to raise money for their failing Fisk University. Not only did the singers accomplish this feat but they also raised the spirits of those going through segregation and teaching them about the lives of ancestors through slavery. Music allowed for all them to touch lives– traveling the same steps of the Underground Railroad they ventured on their tour. The Fisk Jubilee Singers was a pivotal part in African American history; they kept moral high, informed the masses on past history and united black people with their voices.
