United In Song - 22" x 22" - oil

From the beginning, music has been and integral part of the African American community and has served as a cohesive force, uniting African and African American people. It is a power that can be called upon to soothe our pain and lift our spirits in times of extreme hardship or to lift us even higher in times of bountiful joy. Music is a common thread which has bonded African American people together throughout history. from the African villages to in the belly of slave ships, to the fields of southern plantations and segregated civil war camps, to the churches and civil rights marches, all the way to present day. Music has comforted and strengthened African American people, holding us together. United. United in song.
