Our colleagues at CPR Classical are producing a yearlong series called "Journey to Freedom: The Spirituals Radio Project." It's a collaboration with M. Roger Holland II, who is an Assistant Professor of African American Music & Theology at the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music. He's also Director of DU’s Spirituals Project Choir. On a recent episode of "Journey to Freedom," Holland reflects on the spiritual “He Never Said A Mumblin Word," which imagines what Jesus Christ endured during the crucifixion.
