The Fisk Jubilee Singers

A Conversation with Paul T. Kwami, Maurice Jackson, and Luke Powery

Duke Performances brings the Fisk Jubilee Singers to Duke and Durham for a four-day residency to share the tradition of Negro spirituals. Dr. Paul T. Kwami, musical director of the Jubilee Singers, worked with over 500 singers from the Durham School of the Arts and Duke, and 75 choral students from Durham School of the Arts performed with the Jubilee Singers at the culminating sold-out concert at Duke’s Baldwin Auditorium. Dr. Kwami also participated in a panel discussion on the history and influence of the Jubilee Singers at Duke’s Forum for Scholars and Publics, with Professor Maurice Jackson, and Rev. Dr. Luke Powery, Dean of Duke Chapel.
