DESCRIPTION

In Walk Together Children: The 150th Anniversary of the Fisk Jubilee Singers®, Dr. Paul T. Kwami and his students explore the stories of the original nine members of the world-renowned ensemble. Inviting viewers to share in their unique bond and learn the significance of the Negro Spirituals in today’s culture, the students reflect on their roles as preservers of the group’s legacy. Created in collaboration with Dr. Kwami and director Jon Royal, the film is produced by Tennessee Performing Arts Center.
