NAACP Boulder - Fisk Jubilee Singers
The Fisk Jubilee Singers® are vocal artists and students who sing and travel worldwide.
The original Jubliee Singers® introduced ‘slave songs’ to the world in 1871 and were instrumental in preserving this unique American musical tradition known today as Negro spirituals. They broke racial barriers in the U.S. and abroad in the late 19th century and entertained Kings and Queens in Europe. At the same time, they raised money in support of their beloved school. The Fisk Jubilee Singers® continue the tradition of singing the Negro spiritual around the world. This allows the ensemble to share this rich culture globally, while preserving this unique music.
Free and open to the public, this in-person event is made possible in part by contributions from the City of Boulder Human Relations Commission, the Boulder Arts Commission, and the Longmont Multicultural Center.
Registration and vaccination required.
