Singing Our Journeys

African American Spirituals and Chants that Quiet the Mind
With Dr. Ysaÿe M. Barnwell and Rev. Susan Sims Smith
Saturday, September 7, 2019

Click HERE for tickets and additional information

There is an awesome power in the human voice and when uncommon voices are blended for the common good, they become a vocal community at its best.

In this workshop, masterfully led by Dr. Ysaÿe M. Barnwell, singers and non-singers alike will share the common experience of learning in the oral tradition and singing rhythms, chants, and traditional songs from Africa and the Civil Rights Movement. The historical, social, and political context will provide an introduction to the songs.

All that is required is a willingness to sing.

Following Dr. Barnwell, The Rev. Susan Sims Smith, founder of The Interfaith Center and Arkansas House of Prayer, will lead participants in learning chants to help quiet the mind for meditation. She will also prepare them for an experience of silence in the House of Prayer.

Please click HERE to register. Lunch and snacks will be provided and are included in registration fee.
