SYNOPSIS

Without the spirituals, there would be no gospel, blues, jazz, R& B, or hip-hop and rap. And though many of us are familiar with some of the songs—Wade in the Water, Go Down Moses, This Little Light of Mine, and Oh Freedom—few of us fully understand the deep history, complex origins, and coded messages of a music born in slavery.

I Can Tell the World follows members of an interracial, multigenerational choir committed to the preservation and performance of African American spirituals. As these diverse men and women share stories of personal transformation, we learn how the experience of shared song can help heal a nation still wounded by racism.
