Abstract:

African- America poet and statesman, James Weldon Johnson, emphasized the importance of African-Americans producing great literature and art in order to effectively demonstrate their intellectual equality and advance their placement in America. In the area of music, one of the earlier contributions of African-Americans was the spiritual which existed through oral tradition and was an integral part of worship in the invisible churches of the Negro slaves. After l865 and the emancipation, various church groups established colleges for recently freed slaves and, in order to help keep these institutions financially solvent, groups such as the Fisk Jubilee Singers went on tour performing a repertoire of spirituals for various audiences. Artistic movements such as the Black Renaissance influenced the singing and interpreting of the spiritual. Black composers not only rearranged spirituals but composed classical art songs to be performed by artists such as Roland Hayes and Marian Anderson on the concert stage. Our lecture/performance recital involves voice and piano and will focus on the organizations, entrepreneurs, composers, musicians and music genres which were crucial to the advancement of social and economic equality in the arts from the spiritual to the art songs performed on the concert stage.
