Event Description: *Contributing performer of the 33rd Annual USC Aiken Cultural Series*

The centuries old struggle for freedom by Africans in America, culminating in the Civil Rights movement and continuing even today, stands as a shining example of the power and dignity of the human spirit. This story is told by the performance of The Princely Players. The Princely Players have been featured on National Public Radio and the BBC and has been heard on the Smithsonian's "Wade in the Water" series and the "Time-Life Civil War" recordings. The essence of this spirit is embodied in the music that was a part of the experience. Songs of hope and the quest for freedom are found in the struggle to survive the difficult and de-humanizing trauma of slavery. And these songs were the galvanizing force in the struggle against what must have seemed impossible odds. "Amazing Grace", "Steal Away", "Swing Low Sweet Chariot", "Go Down Moses", and "Wade in the Water" are all testaments that still speak powerfully to us today. In the tradition of the early singers of the music of African American life, The Princely Players offer evocative and stunning programs on the enslavement and liberation of African-Americans.
