Film Event: Rejoice & Shout
Tuesday, February 26 at 6:30 pm in the Library auditorium

Please join us for a free screening of the acclaimed documentary Rejoice & Shout:

Culled from hundreds of hours of music, tracing the evolution of gospel music through its many styles - the spirituals and early hymns, the four-part harmony-based quartets, the integration of blues and swing, the emergence of "soul," and the blending of rap and hip-hop elements. It connects the history of African-American culture with gospel as it first impacted popular culture at large and captures so much of what is special about this music and African-American Christianity.

Running time is 116 minutes.  Refreshments will be served and all are welcome.
