WHO: There is something about music that seems to bring people closer to each other, often connecting them as a community. This is true today, and it is true historically, even throughout some of the most difficult periods of the past. With a look (and listen!) to a combination of spiritual and protest songs, vocalist Mary D. Williams will help people understand the role music played from enslavement through the Civil Rights Movement, illustrating how music provides an effective entry point for uniting people as history is examined.
Funding for this program is made possible with the generous support of the Friends of the Chatham Community Library.
Residents may visit the libraries’ website www.chathamlibraries.org, or contact the Library at (919) 545-8084 for more information on this and other events and programs.
