Event Description

The Spirituals Project is an organization dedicated to preserving and revitalizing the spirituals through musical, educational, and social justice work in our community. “The origin of the Negro Spiritual lies in community,” according to M. Roger Holland. “The Spirituals were created in community, by community, for the purposes and needs of the community.”

You are invited to come and sing along with others, lifting one another as we sing together. “Spirituals were meant to uplift, inform, sustain and encourage the community. And the singing of them also creates community,” says Holland.

Join CPR Classical and The Spirituals Project at the Newman Center for the Performing Arts. Celebrate and honor the history of spirituals lead by M. Roger Holland, II, special guest Dr. Kim R. Harris, and Denver storyteller Theo Wilson. This event is the culmination of the Journey to Freedom: The Spirituals Radio Project, a partnership between CPR Classical and M. Roger Holland.

Update: The in-person event is now sold out. Visit for streaming options — watch “Journey to Freedom: Building Community Song” from the comfort of your home Saturday, May 14th starting at 7:30pm.
