Time is important to me because I want to sing long enough to leave a message. I’m used to singing in churches where nobody would dare stop me until the Lord arrives! Mahalia Jackson

The Negro Spiritual Project—Recovering Honoring-Recognizing a Lost Art

An Invitation for Support from Dr. r Leel Leela Honeysucker-Mi ysucker Miller

The Negro spiritual, a uniquely American art form, is credited by some cultural commentators for the survival of African American people p p through g slavery, y, Jim Crow, racism and the civil rights struggle. It speaks poignantly of a people’s belief in God’s ability to protect them and propel them into a better future. Often, against all odds, the musical idiom known as the African American spiritual, gave those who stru uggled againstt injustice the faith and strength to keep movving forward. Recognizing the value of th he Ne egro sp piritual,no ot only to AfricanAmerricans but to the entire country, the PublicBro oad dcasting g System m (PBS) has invitedaforremost expert on the subject to create a docum mentaryse eries: The Negro Spirituall Project; A Lostt Art. Noted expert, Dr.LLeela Honeysucker-M Miller, is seeking the support of corporaations, civic organizations, churches, faith groups and progressive individuals for the producction of this ex xciting series.
