NAACP Boulder County will wrap up its six weeks walk with me series with a special performance by the Grammy Award-winning Fiske Jubilee Singers, a multi-award winning ensemble credited with introducing and supporting the tradition of Negro spiritual. The band began performing in 1871, touring America and Europe singing songs sacred to them – and raising money to save their school, Fisk University, from financial ruin. One hundred and fifty years later, the Fisk Jubilee Singers continue to impress audiences. Free entry; Register here.
