Details: 
Join us in welcoming New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park Rangers Bruce Barnes and Matt Hampsey as they entertain and educate us with popular songs of the abolitionist movement. These talented Rangers / Musicians will share the history of freedom songs, traditional spirituals and other music of the Mississippi Delta that influenced the abolitionist movement of the 19th century as well as the larger American story. Rangers Barnes and Hampsey have conducted this program across the country and have become an integral part of musical interpretation in the United States.
Bostonians, both black and white, were at the heart of the country's abolitionist movement and their activism took many forms including political speeches in the African Meeting House, articles in antislavery newspapers, and songs of freedom.
This is the seventh program in our 2011 Civil War Lecture Series.
This event will be held at the Museum of African American History. Entrance fees apply. Museum Members: Free. Adults: $5. 13-17 years and 62 years and over: $3.
