The combined choirs of Community Baptist Church and Mount Zion A.M.E. Church present a program of spirituals, gospel music and brief narration of Black history. It’s free and all are welcome. For a primer on gospel music and its ties to the civil rights movement, check out this playlist that the Detroit Metro Times put out in 2015. And here’s the Capitol City Quartette’s “No Jim Crow In Heaven“.
