In the Lincoln Library Carnegie Room, at 7 p.m., on Thursday, October 15, 2015, Naima Johnston Bush, PhD, will perform “Spiritual Songs: A Musical Lecture on the History of the Negro Spiritual.”

Several years ago, Bush, began studying the history of the Negro Spiritual and discovered the “tantalizing tales of the Underground Railroad, forest escape routes, and messages hidden in quilts and songs. The story of slavery and the music that it produced is filled with pain, but in the midst of this tapestry of horror are the weavings of hope, faith, love and survival.”
