Join us for a special screening of The Sacred Soul of North Carolina, and a Q&A with producers Tim and Denise Duffy from the Music Maker Relief Foundation.
Thursday, July 01, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm | McChesney Scott Dunn Auditorium
North Carolina is home to some of the most celebrated gospel groups in the world, and nowhere is that truer than in Eastern North Carolina. The Sacred Soul of North Carolina explores the significance of gospel to daily life in the American South and presents stories and songs from traditional and contemporary gospel performers.
The evening will open with a guided tour of Freeman Vines: Hanging Tree Guitars, and the screening will start 6:45 pm (the film has a 30-minute runtime). After the screening, Tim and Denise Duffy will lead a discussion into the making of the film and lead an open discussion on the rich tradition of gospel music in North Carolina.
This event is free with pay-what-you-want pricing (suggested $10 donation).
