Michael Harrison, along with some of their collective, in the WRTI Performance Studio.


Continuing WRTI 90.1’s tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the dynamic baritone Keith Spencer joined us on the air and on Facebook for a program that explored the rich musical legacy of the African-American experience, with host Debra Lew Harder.

With genius and grace, African-American slaves transformed bitter human experience into a beautiful art form called the "spiritual."
