Event Description

African American spirituals, gospel, and folk music all played an important role in the Civil Rights Movement. Activists sang these songs for multiple purposes - to motivate them through long marches, for psychological strength against harassment and brutality, and sometimes to simply pass the time when waiting. Featured guests include: Tammi Brown, Inner Light Gospel Choir, Monterey Peninsula Community Gospel Choir, Progressive Missionary Baptist Church Men’s Choir and new voices to the gospel night celebration. Cost - $$20 at the door. Tickets will not be sold in advance. “Only through an inner spiritual transformation do we gain the strength to fight vigorously the evils of the world in a humble and loving spirit.” – MLK, Jr.
