1873 Jubilee Singers African American History Music
Item Details
Description
1873 Jubilee Singers African American History Music Underground Railroad Slavery



Founded at the end of the Civil War, Fisk University was an educational institution for freedmen and other young African American students. Five years into its life, the school began to face severe financial difficulty. The Jubilee singers were formed as a traveling music group to raise money for the school. After a very rough start, the first United States tours eventually earned $40,000 for Fisk University.



The original Jubilee Singers introduced slave songs to the world in 1871 and were instrumental in preserving this unique American musical tradition known today as Negro spirituals. They broke racial barriers in the US and abroad in the late 19th century.



This 1873 edition of “The Story of the Jubilee Singers”, features 10 portraits of the singers. A charming piece of early Black Americana.
