Experience the joy and dynamic power of music! Preserving African American Traditions and culture through storytelling and song, the Freetown Village Singers present an interactive performance of traditional folk songs and Negro Spirituals. Freetown Village is a living history museum with the mission to educate the public about African American lives, arts, and culture in Indiana through exhibits, special programs and events. Programs include interactive theater, music, storytelling, hands-on crafts or heritage workshops or other performance based programs. Programs tour statewide and are appropriate for various ages.
Following Freetown Village Singers, Kim and Reggie Harris will take the stage. They bring together storytelling and traditional music, including gospel, folk and classical as well as rock, jazz and pop. The couple uses music and stories to bring the Underground Railroad and the Civil Rights Movement to life in an accessible, understandable way that cuts right to the heart of the issue.
In an evening of story and song, Kim and Reggie share stories and songs from the great African American storytelling movement, both from Africa and from around the world. Hear classic stories like "The People Could Fly" and unique, touching stories including "Spreading Fingers for Friendship" from Suriname.
This performance is interpreted for the deaf and hard of hearing.
