UC Berkeley Gospel Choir director D. Mark Wilson offers a presentation on the freedom songs of the black civil rights struggle of the 1960s. Drawing from his background as musical director of several churches, including, most recently, St. Columba’s in north Oakland, he will illustrate the roots of these protest songs in the musical traditions of the black church.
