Morehouse College Celebrates Black Church Music


The Morehouse Department of Music celebrated the music of the African American church during the two-day conference “How Sweet The Song: 2nd Ecumenical Celebration of Music in the Black Church.”

It’s partly a conference — with workshops to help musicians brush up on their skills. It’s also part celebration — since it seeks to connect attendees with the legacy of African-American Christian music.
