Dark Midnight When I Rise tells the story of a troupe of young ex-slaves and freedmen whose odyssey from cotton field and auction block to concert stage and throne room is one of the most remarkable trajectories in American history. Singing the sacred hymns of their ancestors, the Fisk Jubilee Singers introduced the world to African American music. They enchanted such luminaries as Ulysses S. Grant, Frederick Douglass, Mark Twain, Queen Victoria, and Prime Minister William Gladstone, and demonstrated to millions of white Americans and Europeans the courage, dignity, and intelligence of African Americans. The Jubilees set out in the fall of 1871 to raise money for Nashville's nearly bankrupt Fisk University, one of many black schools established after the Civil War to teach reading and writing to the tens of thousands of emancipated slaves who clamored for an education. Ejected from hotels and railroad cars, shivering in the winter cold, the bedraggled singers performed along the route of the old Underground Railway to Brooklyn, where, a few days before Christmas, they sang for Henry Ward Beecher's Plymouth Church congregation. They caused such a sensation that soon they were raising thousands of dollars a week performing to overflow audiences up and down the Eastern Seaboard. After tours of Great Britain, Holland, Switzerland, and Germany, they not only rescued Fisk but built it into one of the nation's preeminent African American institutions of higher learning.

Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: The Jubilee Singers were nine former slaves, many of them in their teens, who set off from Nashville in the fall of 1871 to save Fisk University from collapse. For months they worked the old Underground Railway's network of abolitionist congregations, raising barely enough money to survive. They finally made it to New York City, where, under the sponsorship of Henry Ward Beecher, they caused a sensation, introducing Negro spirituals to thousands of whites who had never before heard authentic African American music. They toured not only the eastern United States but Britain and Europe, and raised what today would be millions of dollars. But they paid a terrible price. Touring killed one of them and destroyed the voices of several others. They faced discrimination on the road and ruthless exploitation at the hands of their missionary managers. The Jubilee Singers persevered and blazed a trail for such legendary black musicians as Paul Robeson, Marian Anderson, Harry Belafonte, Mahalia Jackson, Ray Charles, and Aretha Franklin. A tale of courage, artistry, and exploitation, Dark Midnight When I Rise movingly recounts a remarkable piece of American history.
