What of those resources that sustained our ancestors can still sustain us today? This session creates an intergenerational safe space to practice critical analysis with gospel music as the text. We will learn vocal warm-ups, songs, share experiences and discuss what the words mean to us. Finally, we will create a song for AMC2015 in gospel style. Queer Black Sunday School uses art, music and tradition as a tool for communicating across difference and salvaging traditions. It is a safe space for consideration, healing and re-discovery.
