This video is the story of the Jubilee Singers of Fisk University. When their school found itself in financial trouble, the singers saved the day through their beautiful singing of spirituals. In 1871, they went on an historic tour and sang before President Ulysses S. Grant, and Queen Victoria of England. Their message of racial equality (all but two members of the group were former slaves) and spirituality struck a chord with audiences around the world. Using reenactments, archival photographs, and excerpts from diaries and letters, the stories of these extraordinary young people are told.
