with Phyllis Wade

With the aid of her powerful voice, Phyllis Wade combines acapella spirituals, slave narratives, and stories passed down through generations to pay tribute to one of the move controversial periods of our nation’s history. The music we have come to know as “signal songs” was used by slaves to communicate with one another and to share directions to the Promised Land via the Underground Railroad. These powerful songs and stories will move you to stand up, clap, sing and rejoice for freedom.
