The beauty of Black music resides in its tones, but its power lies in the narrative. The narrative that the cast of Blessed Assurance has chosen when they tell the story of Black music is paramount to the audience’s reception, appreciation, and dissemination of it. The complex connection between literature, art, and music to the history of Black people in American culture cannot be easily overstated. Experience the story of Black music in this showcase of spiritual music, which has shifted and grown from the fields of the Agrarian South all the way to the stage of Carnegie Hall.
