Perelman American Roots

Thank you for joining us in our exploration of African American song.

The Perelman American Roots program was designed in conjunction with Honor! A Celebration of the African American Cultural Legacy, a Carnegie Hall festival that took place in March 2009 and was curated by Jessye Norman.

The curriculum touches upon African American song in many different guises: music from Africa, work songs, Spirituals, and gospel. These songs have provided a historical means by which dreams can be realized, prayers can be answered, burdens can be cast off, people can be united, and freedom can become a reality.
