Summary
Setting out initially to raise money for their university, the Fisk Jubilee Singers--a group of young ex-slaves and freedmen--ended up changing the face of American music. Despite their venues of small-town churches and train stations, and the hardships of poverty and racism, the Jubilee singers eventually became a popular vocal group whose admirers included Ulysses S. Grant and Queen Victoria. Recounted here for the first time is the career of the Jubilee Singers, which followed one of the most remarkable progressions in American history: from whipping post and auction block to concert hall and throne room
