A Gospel musical adaptation of James Weldon Johnson’s writings.
Johnson was a leading figure of the Harlem Renaissance, and one of the most revered African Americans of all time, whose life demonstrated the full spectrum of struggle and success. In God’s Trombones, one of his most celebrated works, inspirational sermons of African American preachers are reimagined as poetry, reverberating with the musicality and splendid eloquence of the spirituals.
Debbie Blackwell Cook won an AUDELCO award for her performance.
