A Message from the Director, Ms. Izola Collins:
We are so happy in Galveston, Texas to celebrate 150 years of our nation not legally allowing any more humans to be in physical slavery. That the ending of this practice happened right here in Galveston gives us reason to rejoice and thank God. That’s where we come in – showing how the slaves “sang a new song” as the Bible relates. They sang the first “new songs” on American soil. Others came from other countries with songs from their lands. The slaves sang Spirit songs – now called Spirituals. They were the “folk’s music” not written by any one or two people. These years, we have arranged the spirituals for soloists and choirs. we show what they mean to us, and why we should never forget them.
