Gospel Music was created as a coping mechanism to deal with the circumstances the slaves found themselves in. They used their ability to sing and hum as a way of sending messages to one another and to confuse their masters.
In honor of celebrating Black History the Old Dillard Foundation will present two music videos to celebrate past while creating the present and building the future.
The first video will be a gospel concert featuring Ryneill Atkins and the Traveling QC’s will air February 28th at 7pm on www.facebook/
The 2nd video is a portion of a musical called “Hallelujah”
The major sponsor for these productions are brought to you by Funding Arts Broward which supports innovative local visual and performing arts in Broward County, Florida.
