Juneteenth 2020 – Songs that Feed the Soul: A Concert

Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire
222 Court Street
Portsmouth, NH 03801

The daily struggles, triumphs, hopes and failures of generations of Black Americans are carefully and methodically recorded not only in the pages of history textbooks but also by the music and lyrics of the era.

This virtual concert, with performances from members of the Negro Ensemble Company New York with Burgundy Williams, Joy Brown & more, will feature songs that defined certain eras in African American history. From the coded messages of subversion implicit in traditional Spirituals to the stirring soulful songs emanating from Motown, this musical montage will have you testifying to the impact of Black music on America and the world.
